Bread And Butter Pudding ( British Version)

Recommended Posts

8/9 slices of bread taken from an uncut loaf ( You can use a french bread baton if desired)

3oz or 1/2 cup of sultanas and candied peel

1/2 cup of sugar

2 eggs

2 cups of milk

nutmeg sprinkle

1 tsp cinnamon


Mix the egg with the milk, add the spices and the sugar. Lay the bread slices in a dish deep enough to take all the mixture. Place the fruit between the layers, topping off with a layer of bread. Pour the milk mixture over and leave to soak for about 1 hour.


Bake in a moderate oven for about 45 mins or until golden brown and well risen.

Serve with brandy sauce or fresh cream.

sultanas are very similar to raisins but they are a bit longer and golden coloured. You can use raisins. The candied peel is like what you use in fruit cake - bits of orange, lemon, cherries, etc. that have been preserved in sugar.

thank you !! This morning I was going through an old recipe book and it was called sultana, I read the recipe and I figure it had to be like raisins and some candied fruit. Hey you learn something new everyday, I like that very much. Again thank you... Sam

Glad you straightened that one out!


My gran used to call them white raisins. It's funny how we all speak the sam language but have different terms for the same things.

You can use apricots or any dried fruit in a bread and butter pudding but this is my grans old recipe.


I hope you enjoy this one. I did this recipe for my radio show and everyone in the studio loved it


Best wishes
