British puddings are the best in the world no doubt. Bread and Butter Pudding is a traditional English recipe, but you know how we like to bake at home..

Some history about the Bread and Butter Pudding, it used to be called ‘Whitepot’.  And if there was no butter available, people used bone marrow instead.  And if bread was in short supply, rice was used instead – and that’s how the rice pudding came about.

Bread and Butter Pudding was a great way to use up bread that wasn’t quite so fresh anymore.

Here’s how we make Bread and Butter Pudding, you’ll love it! It’s delicious and the ingredients don’t cost much.

  1. Preheat oven to 170 degrees.

  2. Grease a pie dish well.

  3. Butter the bread on both sides and spread with jam on one side and cut into triangles.

  4. Line the pie dish with the buttered bread.

  5. In a bowl mix together the eggs, milk and sugar.

  6. Beat with electric beaters for a couple of minutes to aerate the mixture.

  7. Pour gently over the bread.

  8. Cook for approximately 60 minutes (check mixture frequently - it is ready when the mixture resembles custard).

  9. Serve with vanilla ice-cream and a sprinkle of nutmeg.

Recipe Hints and Tips:

  • Bread and Butter Pudding is suitable to freeze for up to one month.
  • For something a bit fancier (and not so frugal...) try it with croissants and nutella!
