English Recipe Corner: Bread and Butter Pudding

Not my fave I must say but stinkin’ cheap! Thanks, Angela for this!


  • 8 slices of bread
  • 1/2 cup grams of sultana and raisins (1/4 + 1/4)
  • 1/2 jar of jam (strawberry or raspberry)
  • 3/4 cup butter/ spread
  • 1 cup milk
  • 2-3 eggs
  • sugar (to sprinkle on top)
  • serving suggestion
  • serve with cream or custard for best flavour


  1. Take four slices of (preferably semi stale, although it ultimately makes little difference) bread, and butter each on both sides; place them in the dish.
  2. Now, add your Raisins and sultanas, simply sprinkling them on top of the bread. Once you have spread the raisins and sultanas evenly over the bread, spread half a jar of jam over the raisins and bread so that the jam absorbs the fruit.
  3. Next, take the other 4 pieces of bread and butter them on both sides. Place the bread on top of the jam, raisins, etc. and then cut the four sandwich-like portions into halves or even quarters so that you will have smaller pieces.
  4. Put milk into a mixing bowl and whisk in the eggs. When this becomes an almost-cream like colour (or just white with yellow parts), pour the mixture on top of the bread.
  5. Sprinkle a small amount of sugar (optionally) and bake in the oven for about 45 mins.
