Maltese bread pudding is an old favorite and is very easy to make. Start this recipe by greasing an oven-proof baking dish with butter. Next, place the stale bread in a large bowl and pour over the milk and vanilla essence. Using your hands, squash together the bread slices with the milk. Leave the mixture for 5 minutes to allow the bread to soak up all the milk in the bowl. When ready, add in all the remaining ingredients (except the sesame seeds). Using your hands once again, mix all the ingredients together till well incorporated. Pour the mixture into the prepared oven dish and even out. Sprinkle over the sesame seeds and bake in the oven at 200`c for 30 minutes. You can serve the Maltese bread pudding either warm or cold.
