Easy Bread And Butter Pudding Recipe
Bread and butter pudding is pretty easy to make. This bread and butter pudding recipe was traditionally eaten by the poor in England in order to make use of stale bread. Funnily enough, it actually tastes better if you use stale bread! Bread and butter pudding dates back to around 1000AD, but it’s not recommended to let the bread go too stale before turning it into bread and butter pudding 😉
- Brown Sugar
- Mix some cream with milk to make the milk a bit thicker and more decadent
- Add allspice to the mix
- Cut the bread slices in half
- Put a slice of bread in a baking pan at an angle
- Butter the bread, then place raisins on it and pour some of the spiced milk / cream solution on top then add some sugar
- Put another slice of bread overlapping the previous slice
- Repeat steps 5 & 6 until there is no more bread or the dish is full
- Pour the remaining mixture over the bread and butter pudding, ensuring that no part goes dry. The bread should soak up a lot of the mixture but should not be left swimming in milk. Sprinkle some raisins on top and brown sugar if you want it to go nice and caramelised
- Stale bread is best, but don’t use the bread if it’s mouldy!
- White bread works best BY FAR!
- You can also use sliced banana with the raisins or possibly caramelised apple?
