Bread and Butter Pudding Recipe

Spicy Bread and Butter Pudding

With a Spicy Mediterranean Accent

There's nothing old fashioned about Pam's Mediterranean sweet, spicy and alcoholic bread and butter pudding. She has added brandy, allspice, nutmeg and the secret ingredient: our own homemade lemon and kumquat marmalade.

So you end up with a sweet and spicy dessert that gives you all the comfort you could ask for and quite a lot of naughtiness too.

Bread and Butter Pudding Method
  1. Preheat your oven to 180c/350f.
  2. Arrange half the bread slices - butter side up in overlapping lines on the base of the baking dish or casserole.
  3. Roughly spread the Lemon Marmalade and sprinkle on the sultanas.
  4. Top with the remaining bread slices - making sure they overlap slightly.
  5. Whisk the Eggs and then add the Brandy, milk, nutmeg, allspice and sugar and whisk.
  6. Carefully pour this custard mix over the bread, squashing it down with your hand so that it absorbs all the liquid. Allow it to stand for five minutes.
  7. Sprinkle the remaining sultanas on the top.
  8. Now place the baking dish in a large high edged large baking/roasting tin and fill the tin with water until it reaches 3/4 way up the dish.
  9. Bake in the center of the oven for 30 - 40 minutes approx. until it is golden brown and the center is firm to the touch.
  10. Serve immediately with custard or creme fraiche.

Absolutely Delicious
