Recipe for Bread and Butter Pudding

  • 5oz (150g) stale bread (without crusts)
  • 2 oz (50g) sultanas
  • A little candied peel
  • 2 tablespoons demerara or plain white sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/2 pint (275ml) Milk
  • Nutmeg

This is delicious made from stale Hot Cross Buns, Bun Load, or Sally Lunn. Where fruit is already incorporated in loaf or buns, extra sultanas and candied peel are not needed, nor is it necessary to remove crusts.


1.      Butter a pie dish of approximately 1 and a 1/2 pint (845ml) capacity.

2.      Slice bread, butter it and cut into small pieces.

3.      Place half the bread in pie dish, sprinkle on fruit and half the sugar. Cover with the remaining bread.

4.      Beat the egg and milk, pour over, leave 30 minutes to soak.

5.      Sprinkle top with remaining sugar, grate on a little nutmeg.

6.      Bake at Gas 4 (350F/180C) for about 1 hour
