Before you pull the trigger, check the Oxford English Dictionary, which is regarded as the supreme arbiter of the English language in this country; it clearly states (US) after program, except in the case of computer programs. So does Collins; if your version of Chambers does not, I can only assume that it, too, is slavishly pandering to the pathetic fashion for all spellings American. And I make no claims to be right all the time; but on this, I am.
My mum's are perfectly delicious, too, but mine are usually not, even following her recipe. Good luck. ALSO, I agree with everything Spellmaster has pointed out AND I would defend his right to say it, BUT I wonder at his need......... C'mon, essie, give someone some credit for a great reply to a question.
my favorite, from James Beard Bread n Butter Pudding Ingredients: 12 small thin slices French bread Butter 5 whole eggs 4 egg yolks 1 cup of sugar 1/8 teaspoon of salt 4 cups milk 1 cup of heavy cream 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract Confectioners' sugar Trim the crust from the bread, and butter each slice on one side. Beat together the eggs, yolks, sugar and salt until thoroughly blended. In a saucepan combine the milk and cream. Scald them and blend the heated liquids gradually into the yolks mixture. Stir in the vanilla extract. Arrange the slices of bread buttered side up, in a 2-quart baking dish and strain the custard mixture over them. Place the dish in a roasting pan filled with hot water to a depth of 1 inch and bake the pudding in a preheated 375 degree oven 45 minutes, or until a knife inserted in the center of the pudding can be withdrawn clean. Sprinkle the pudding generously with confectioners' sugar and glaze it under a hot broiler. At the Coach House this elegant pudding is served with a puree of fresh raspberries. *From James Beard's American Cookery
Cor, at last you got a recipe! I had the most perfect B&B pud in a restaurant once and found out the secret which improved on the standard basic recipe ... chopped apricots were used instead of the more usual sultanas and honey was drizzled over the top. Incidentally, if you are lucky enough to have left-overs, it tastes even nicer fried in butter for breakfast!
