Today, this delicious and comforting dessert is enjoyed by people all over the world.

Tips and Tricks for Bread and Butter Pudding Recipe

  • It is best to use stale bread for this recipe as it will soak up the custard mixture better, creating a creamier texture.
  • You can use any type of bread for this recipe, such as white, whole wheat, or even croissants or brioche for a richer taste.
  • Adding a pinch of cinnamon or nutmeg to the custard mixture will give the pudding a warm and spicy flavor.
  • Soaking the raisins or sultanas in rum or brandy beforehand will add a delicious boozy flavor to the pudding.

Tips for presenting the dish

  • To make the pudding look more appetizing, sprinkle a little extra brown sugar over the top before baking.
  • Serve the pudding warm with a dollop of whipped cream, custard sauce or a scoop of vanilla ice cream.
  • Garnish with fresh fruit, such as berries or sliced bananas, for a colorful and refreshing touch.
  • You can also serve the pudding as a breakfast dish by adding slices of fresh fruit or a drizzle of honey over the top.
