  • ½ tsp ground mace, plus extra to serve

I don't think the quantities are correct for this recipe, as soon as I put the milk in with the bread it was immediately absorbed and the sauce was way too thick, within 2-3 minutes it had caught badly on the bottom of the pan so you need to keep stirring it, I had to add another 200ml or more of milk, and I suspect when it is reheated more will need to be added. It does taste nice though.
