Bread and butter pudding

bread and butter pudding

So bread and butter pudding is pretty much my favourite dessert ever! It’s not too rich, it melts in ones mouth and it’s so bloody easy to make. Luckily it’s my dad’s favourite too, so I made it for him for his birthday. I pretty much just ate the whole Easter weekend – that’s what you’re suppose to do though right? Do you know what makes b&b pudding even more delicious? Vanilla custard! Yum – I can almost smell the dessert as I’m writing this… The crispy pudding goes so well with the creamy custard that it is a match made in heaven!



  • 4 eggs
  • 2 cups milk
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla essence
  • 1/4 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 8 slices bread
  • roughly 40g butter, softened for spreading on bread


  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 3 tbl plain flour
  • 3 eggs
  • 2 cups milk
  • 2 tsp vanilla essence

Serves 4


For the pudding – in a medium bowl whisk eggs, milk, sugar, vanilla and cinnamon. Grease a baking dish.

Spread both sides of each bread slice with butter then arrange half the bread in rows in prepared dish and pour egg mixture over bread.

Cover with cling wrap and leave to absorb for roughly an hour.

To make the custard – whisk all ingredients on low heat in a medium saucepan. Whisk custard constantly until thickened.

15 minutes prior to baking pudding preheat oven to 180 degrees. Then bake for roughly 30 minutes or until golden and set.

Serve the pudding hot with custard poured over and a sprinkle of cinnamon!

Happy baking, love Jem x
