One particularly nice one is a three egg bread and butter custard.
I marinate sultanas in something alcoholic like Marsala or brandy, soft brown sugar and mixed spices.

Meanwhile I butter a few slices of bread and beat up three eggs in
milk. I then tear the bread up into approximately quarters, layer it in an oven dish with the lively sultanas. I pour the remaining marinade over the lot and squeeze it through the bread a bit.

Finally I pour the egg mix over the top, press it with a fork to ensure absorption by the bread and bake in an oven at about 180 till cooked through. The interesting smell is usually a good indicator.
On a bitter day with a howling Southerly outside, such as the current moment, this is a treat straight out of the oven. Only matched by Jenny O's apple crumbly, but I'm sure she'll tell yez all about that.
                               Cheers, Jack Halyard.
