A simple dish, but classic and tasty all the same. Once again, from the BBC. This is said to be a dish prepared by mistake by a cook in a wealthy household many years ago, and it's remained a favorite since then.
450ml/ ¾ pint breadcrumbs (1 1/2 c)
600ml/ 1 pint milk (2 c)
55g/2oz sugar (1/4 c)
25g/1oz ground almonds (1/8 c)
Butter a pie dish, add the breadcrumbs, covering them with a layer of strawberry or any other kind of jam.
Mix the milk with the beaten eggs, the ground almonds, and the butter and sugar.
Beat all the ingredients together, pour into the dish and bake for 1 hour at a moderate heat.
