The Comforting Creation: Making Bread and Butter Pudding

Now that you have all the ingredients at your fingertips, let’s dive into the step-by-step process of creating this comforting Bread and Butter Pudding:

1. Preparing the Bread:

Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Lightly grease a baking dish with butter or cooking spray. Then, spread softened unsalted butter on one side of each bread slice.


2. Layering the Bread and Raisins:

Cut the buttered bread slices diagonally to form triangles. Arrange a layer of overlapping bread triangles in the greased baking dish. Sprinkle a handful of raisins or sultanas over the bread layer.

3. Creating the Custard:

In a saucepan, heat the whole milk and heavy cream over medium heat until it begins to steam (do not let it boil). In a separate mixing bowl, whisk the eggs, granulated sugar, vanilla extract, ground cinnamon, and a pinch of nutmeg (if using).

4. Combining the Custard and Bread:

Slowly pour the warm milk and cream mixture into the bowl with the whisked eggs, sugar, and spices. Stir continuously to combine the custard.

5. Soaking the Bread:

Carefully pour the custard mixture over the bread and raisins in the baking dish, ensuring all the bread is soaked in the custard. Gently press down on the bread to make sure it’s fully immersed.

6. Baking to Perfection:

Place the baking dish in the preheated oven and bake the Bread and Butter Pudding for 30-35 minutes or until the custard is set and the top is golden brown.

7. Serving the Dessert:

Remove the Bread and Butter Pudding from the oven and let it cool slightly before serving. This delightful dessert can be enjoyed warm or at room temperature.
