Bread and Butter Pudding

The classic bread pudding is one the easiest puddings to make. No wonder most novices begin their culinary journey by trying their hand at this pudding. Here is an easy to make bread pudding recipe for all ‘wanna be’ bakers. Moist from the inside, yet crisp on the top, the extra dash of sherry adds a heady flavour to this all-time favourite dessert.


Butter – 75 gms; softened

Raisins – 75 gms

Sherry – 2 tbsps

Eggs – 5 pcs

Thickened cream – 200 ml

Milk – 200 ml

Raw sugar – 1 tbsps

Castor sugar – 1 cup

Orange – 1pc; zested

Vanilla essence – 1 tsp

Cinnamon powder – a pinch

Nutmeg powder – a pinch

Raisin bread – 1 loaf; sliced


  1. Preheat the oven to 180 C.
  2. Lightly butter a 1.5 litre oven-proof dish. Keep aside.
  3. Whisk together the eggs, cream, milk, sugar, orange zest, vanilla, sherry, cinnamon and nutmeg in a bowl until well combined.
  4. Butter both sides of each bread slice and cut each in half diagonally.
  5. Layer the bread in the oven proof dish and sprinkle the raisins on top.
  6. Pour the egg mixture on top making sure the mixture covers all the layers of the bread.
  7. Push down the sides with your fingers so that the entire bread is soaked in the egg mixture. Let it soak for about 30 minutes. If there is any leftover butter, pour the butter on various areas over the pudding.
  8. Sprinkle the raw sugar on the top and bake for 30-40 minutes or until the custard is firm.
  9. Cool slightly before serving.
