Here’s a beautiful family style Bread & Butter pudding I made at work recently, an English classic dessert.

My mum and Nan have been asking for months since lockdown to make them one, sorry, it’s coming soon. 🙂

This great Bread & Butter pudding recipe will wow your friends and family. Super luxurious with extra cream used in the custard mixture. Glazing at the end with castor sugar gives it a delicious crunchy topping.

To get going, I first make the egg custard mixture and allow it to cool and then get onto assembling the Bread and Butter pudding.

In a pan, I heat to simmer the milk, cream and split vanilla pod. (Be careful not to heat up too fast as the milk/cream will boil over the pan). I then whisk the egg yolks and sugar in a bowl. I pour over and mix the hot cream liquid over the egg yolks and sugar and allow to cool.

To assemble, butter slices of bread on one side, cut off the crusts and cut into triangles.

Rub some butter around the ovenproof dish, assemble the triangles of bread to make a layer on the bottom of the dish, sprinkle with a little sugar and raisins like above.

Then pour over the custard mix and repeat for another 2 layers, pouring over the remaining custard mix. Place your dish in another tray with a tea towel underneath to prevent sliding. Pour hot water around the tray and bake at 120°c for 35-45 minutes.

Once cooked to your liking, sprinkle a good amount of castor sugar on top of the B & B. Now glaze with a blow torch or grill quickly under a grill.

Serve with either fresh cream, custard or ice cream. Divine and delicious.
