This is an old British Recipe, not to be confused with Bread and Butter Pudding. Bread Pudding is almost like a spicy cake rather than a dessert.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 11 ounces whole meal bread, cut into 1 inch chunks
  • 12 pint milk
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 2 ounces butter, softened
  • 4 ounces raisins
  • 2 ounces other dried fruit such as chopped apricots, blueberries, cherries etc
  • 4 ounces brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon cinnamon
  • 1 tablespoon grated nutmeg

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 190 °C / 375 °F / Gas 5.
  2. In a large bowl, mix the bread and milk. Leave to soak for 5 minutes.
  3. Add the remaining ingredients and mix well. Press into a greased oblong sandwich tin, approximately 23 cm x 20 cm (9 x 8 inch).
  4. Bake for 35-40 minutes. Leave in the tin to cool, then turn out and cut into squares.
  5. Store in the fridge in an airtight container or in foil and eat within 2 days.
