DIRECTIONS

Slice the bread into 3/4 inch thick slices and remove the crusts

Butter the slices all over, both sides and line the dish

Sprinkle over the dried fruit or other fruits (I like fig and banana, yum)

Sprinkle some brown sugar over that and add a cover of more buttered bread, covering all the fruit.

Pierce the bread a few times and then slowly pour over the milk, letting it all soak into the bread before adding more. When the bread is really sopping with milk sprinkle more sugar over the top and then a little cinnamon, ginger and nutmeg.
