Ewan McGregor has contributed a recipe to a charity cookbook raising money for Rachel House, a Scottish children’s hospice. The cookbook can be ordered at Ewan’s recipe (and U.S. translations!) are beneath the cut. Thanks to Rach for the link and info!


Serves six

8 slices bread, buttered with crusts removed

275ml full cream milk

50ml double cream

110g sultanas

100g caster sugar

3 eggs lightly beaten

Half tsp cinnamon Grated nutmeg

Preheat oven to gas mark four/ 350F/ 180C.

BUTTER six individual dishes and line them with buttered bread.

Add the milk and cream to the eggs and whisk.

Add the sugar, sultanas and cinnamon to the egg mixture and pour over the bread. Sprinkle with nutmeg, whipped cream and fruit of choice. Bake for 30 to 40 minutes. Best served warm.

U.K. to U.S terms:

  • full cream milk = whole *non homogenized* milk (available at health food stores)
  • double cream = heavy whipping cream (but more butterfat than anything available in the US.)
  • sultanas = golden raisins
  • caster sugar = “Superfine” sugar
