Our Incredible Bread & Butter Pudding Recipe
There is nothing better to warm you up this winter than warm bread and butter pudding straight out of the oven. Enjoy for afternoon tea or if you’re feeling up to it, have a piece for breaky with your favourite cuppa.
This particular recipe is custardy on the inside and buttery, golden brown on the outside. You can choose any toppings with this recipe from cream, to the classic custard, ice cream or our personal favourite, maple syrup! Or why not try they all? Too naughty right? Give this little recipe a go and let us know what you think!
What you’ll need:
- 7-8 cups white stale bread, cut into 2.5cm cubes (try brioche or hot crossed buns, we used croissants!)
- 1 cup sultanas
For the Egg Mixture:
- 3 eggs
- 3 tbsp / 40g melted and cooled unsalted butter
- 1 ½ cups or 375 ml full cream milk
- 1 cup/ 250 ml thickened cream
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 1 tsp cinnamon powder
- ½ cup / 110 g white sugar
- 2 tbsp / 30 g melted butter to place on top before baking
- 2 tbsp / 30 g unsalted butter melted for brushing on top right after baking
- Custard, cream, ice cream, maple syrup, caramel or chocolate sauce (you decide!)
- Preheat oven to 180C
- Wisk eggs briefly in large bowl
- Add all other egg mixture ingredients and wisk together
- Add sultanas and bread, mix briefly with spoon, set aside to allow egg mixture to soak into bread for roughly 3 minutes
- Place mixture into greased 2.5 L baking dish
- Brush the 2 tbsp of melted butter on top
- Bake 25 minutes until golden brown on the outside
- Brush the pudding with 2 tbsp melted butter then dust with icing sugar
- Serve immediately with your chosen topping!
You don’t have to use regular white sandwich bread. In fact, brioche, raisin bread or even hot crossed buns make this recipe taste outstanding! Any bread like sourdough, rye or breads with seeds are a no no. If your bread isn’t stale, this recipe can end up being far too soft or overdone. To make your bread stale, simply slice it up and place it in the oven on 100C for 10-30 minutes to dry it out a bit more (ensure to watch it, so it doesn’t burn).
Sultanas can overcook if they are sticking up while baking. Try pushing them down into the mixture before baking if this is an issue.
That’s it! Enjoy!
