I asked Mum if I could try and make it. Mum said yes. I love to make new desserts on my own.
I got all the ingredients out then got to work. I soon had it finished and in the oven.
When dinner time came we all had a big helping of my dessert
Imogen asked, "What is in this dessert?"
I answered "Bread. milk, sugar and mixed herbs."
"I dont think that you mean mixed herbs but mixed spices." said Mum. "There would be green bits in it if it was mixed herbs."
"There are green bits in it," Imogen said. "Mum I think these are mixed herbs, not mixed spices"
I said "Oh no! I put the wrong thing in it."
"Oh well it tastes nice anyway," said Charlotte. "Just don't tell Duncan and he will never know".
If you want to make this dessert here it is:

Spread the bread with low-fat spread and cut into small pieces.
2 Place the bread in several layers in the prepared dish.
3 Whisk together the skimmed milk, mixed spice, demerara sugar and eggs in a mixing bowl. pour the mixture over the bread, covering it all. Sprinkle over the sultanas and leave to stand for 30 minutes.

I did not take any photos of the dessert so I can not put any in.
