Bread and Butter Pudding

I love classic English dishes and there isn't much more classic than bread and butter pudding. This recipe has a nice crisp golden top with lovely soggy bread under it. Simply divine.


  • 15 slices of white bread, preferably stale, but not necessarily

  • Butter or margarine to butter the bread

  • 4 eggs

  • 175g caster sugar

  • 400ml milk

  • 250ml double cream

  • 150g sultanas

  • Butter to grease the dish you're making the pudding in

  • 30g caster sugar to sprinkle on the top


  1. Butter the slices of bread and cut them into triangular pieces

  2. Mix the eggs, sugar, milk and cream in a jug

  3. Butter the dish that you'll be placing the pudding in

  4. Cover the bottom of the dish with half the bread

  5. Next place about 100g of the sultanas over the bread in the dish

  6. Then place the remaining bread in the dish, followed by the sultanas

  7. Slowly pour the egg and milk mixture over the bread in the dish, making sure to cover every piece of bread in some of the mixture to stop it from burning in the oven

  8. Finally sprinkle the 30g of caster sugar over the top

  9. Bake in an oven at 170 degrees for 40-50 minutes, until the top is golden brown

Serves 6-8 people.
