Irish Bread and Butter Pudding

READY IN: 40mins




  • Spread bread slices out on a cutting board and leave out for a few hours to stale a bit.
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a small bowl, combine the sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg and salt, set aside.
  • Spread butter evenly over the six slices of bread (one side only—not both!), and cut the slices in to fourths.
  • Spray a round 8 or 9 inch baking dish with non-stick cooking spray. Arrange the cut bread slices around in the pan to make somewhat of a spiral pattern , keeping the buttered side up and the cut edges facing the same direction.
  • Sprinkle the raisins evenly over the top, followed by the cinnamon/sugar mixture.
  • Whisk the eggs and milk together in a bowl and pour over the bread. Allow to sit for 15 minutes so that the bread can absorb the liquid.
  • Bake for about 30 minutes, or until the top is golden brown. Serve warm. If desired, sprinkle some powdered sugar for garnish. In Ireland, they like to pour a bit of cream on top.
