small small squares, then line it all with the crust to make one huge (slightly overlapping) slice.. then pour a generous amount of amaretto in it!,, or use pannetone instead of regular bread and some brandy butter!

Ah, but a loaf of tin-baked bread doesn't slice into neat shapes - check the big curve of the top crust...

Spike - I only ever make bread and butter pudding when there's old bread to be used up, so buying the right things in advance kinda defeats the object of it. However, I had soaked the fruit in marsala wine, and the custard was made with fresh cream and real eggs. :)

wise on the old bread use!

i tried grating the bread once, it turned WAY to mushy!

youve made me want bread and butter pudding now! and tiramisu (i dont know how i came to that)

but i feel thats too much unhealthyness for one sitting!

Your best option is probably to try Penrose tiles. :)
