Recipe 3 – Retro bread and butter pudding

5 Mar

A deliciously fruity take on a trad’ pud’ perfect for using up all those hot cross buns bought on special offer in a moment of madness! Very simple to prepare and amazing with ice cream.

You will need:

2 medium eggs
350 ml milk
4 Hot cross buns 1 tbsp brown sugar
Medium sized baking dish
Butter or marge
*ice cream to serve*

Slice your buns in half and butter. Now cut each half into two pieces (semi circle chunks) Start by lining the pieces around the edges of your dish and work your way inwards. Pack them closely but not too tightly, you need to leave room for your mixture to expand. Pre heat the oven at 160 oC.


Now pour your milk into a measuring jug, crack in two eggs and beat til combined.

Pour this mixture evenly over your neatly filled dish and let it sit for 5 mins to soak up the liquid.

Sprinkle with sugar and pop into the oven. Check it at 15 minutes. After 20-25 minute your pudding should have risen and be golden brown on top. Mmmmmmmmmmm. Ready!


Serve with ice cream. Go on.
