    Serves: 6 

    • 1 cup (220g) white sugar
    • 1 1/2 cups (375ml) water
    • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
    • 1 pinch ground cloves

    Preparation:20min  ›  Cook:30min  ›  Ready in:50min 

    1. Preheat oven to 180 degrees C. Grease a casserole dish. Set aside.
    2. In a medium saucepan heat sugar until it liquefies. If you have a sugar thermometer, cook the sugar without stirring until it reaches 160 degrees C. If not, cook till it becomes a clear amber coloured syrup.
    3. Add the water, cinnamon and cloves. Bring to a boil then reduce heat and simmer. Stir in vanilla.
    4. Layer in prepared casserole dish: half the toast, half the sultanas, half the nuts, half the syrup and half the cheese. Repeat layers. Bake uncovered for 30 minutes. Serve warm.

    This is super, super sweet but good. I liked that this didn't have any eggs in it to give it that eggy taste that some bread puddings have. I had some hot dog buns that I needed to use up. I didn't have any raisins so I used dried cranberries. I also used pecans instead of walnuts. The instructions said to melt the sugar into a syrup first and then add the water but when I did that it turn into a hardened mess. I mean it was a real stuck on mess. Not sure if there is something missing here or I did something wrong. I went back and tried it again but this time I put the water in first and then disolved the sugar into it. That worked out fine.  -  20 Feb 2013  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
