Old Fashioned Bread and Butter Pudding.

Bread and Butter Pudding

I am not one to waste anything and particularly now I live here in Thailand as Thais eat Nose to tail..literally…

What to do with left over bread.????…Well lots as it is..you can make breadcrumbs which can be used in numerous ways, Bread pudding, Summer Pudding or Bread and butter pudding.

In England there is a definite difference between Bread Pudding and Bread and Butter puddingThey are totally different dishes.Bread pudding is quite dense, Bread and Butter pudding is lighter.

But bread I never waste it is so versatile … This pudding is one my mum used to make and I know there are many variations now adding marmalade and jams etc…

This is just a plain old-fashioned, traditional Bread and Butter pudding not to be confused with bread pudding which is totally different.

Bread and Butter Pudding!

Bread and butter pudding

Ingredients :

  • 50g/2 oz butter, plus extra for greasing
  • 8 thin slices bread
  • 50g/2/3 oz sultanas
  • 2 tsp cinnamon powder
  • 350 ml/12 fl oz whole milk
  • 50 ml/2 fl oz double cream
  • 2 free-range eggs
  • 25 gm/1 oz granulated sugar
  • Nutmeg, grated, to taste.

Let’s Cook !

Grease your dish/dishes with butter.

Now get your bread ready , butter one side of the bread and cut in fingers or triangles depending on what shape dish you are using.

Instead of butter you can put jam or marmalade on the bread…Me I love it JUST with butter.

Take 2 eggs for a medium pudding or I sometimes use ramekins which then would make

4/5 small puddings, whisk the eggs and add the milk andcream..stir well.

Arrange bread in dish and sprinkle some dried raisins in between the layers finishing

with the bread. Sprinkle a small amount of sugar over the top andpour the egg mixture

over leave to absorb the egg mix, if needed top it up a little with milk.

Pre heat the oven to 180 C/355 F/Gas 4.

Cook for 30/40 minutes if using a large dish or smaller ramekins take approx 20/25 mins,

cook until well risen and golden…Serve on it’s own or with custard.


A simple pudding and a way to use up bread and if you just want to use milk which I

often do it is just as nice.

        Vanilla or rose water sometimes. I believe there is a recipe that is similar called
        Shahi Tukda( Royal bits) in Northern India, that is served at weddings.
