Bread And Butter Pudding

Amongst the lines of family visits and many more dinners, I managed to wiggle into my tiny skirt which isn't tiny at all (They're a tad smaller than those required to fit The Hulk). After jumping, rolling and with the help of holding my breath, I defeated the tiny skirt. This means I could have a whole pot of Bread and Butter pudding to myself. It seemed like a good idea.

Once again, please head on over to Pencil Kitchen's facebook page.
Bread and butter pudding. Its bread spread with butter baked in a smooth soft custard pudding. And for the boozy lovers, a very rum sauce.
And have you had bread butter pudding cold before? Let sit in the fridge overnight and you have yourself a cold dessert for summer.
The original recipe was Nigella Lawson's Croissant Pudding. However, one of my house rules is to never leave a croissant to stale. So I used leftover raisin bread. Raisin breads are originally sweeter than croissants or white breads, so I reduced the sugar by 1 tbsp but the above recipe is for white/wheat breads. And this recipe is by far the best bread butter pudding i've ever had. Not to forget, the very Rum sauce, I assure you, addictive.
Need a new skirt to contain all these awesomeness,
Jes

  2. This reminds me very much of a dessert I had in the Bahamas - heavenly doesn't even begin to describe it. I like your "skirt test" - I shall remember that one!

  13. you have a LOVELY site here.. love all your pics. and this recipe - love that you only used 1 tbsp of butter. I made a cinnamon raisin bread pudding a short while ago and I used 1 tbsp too... you really don't need so much fat in every recipe. :-)
    Love the RUM addition.

    1. @ Kiersten: The traditional method was to spread butter on the breads... plus I thought, what could go wrong with a bit of butter right? Wrong. A lot of things could go wrong. But taste-wise, it was heaven. Now I just have to spend half of what's left of my savings for a fat-suction or Acai Berries. Or a gym membership.

  17. stale bread never looked so good. in the past, i've used whiskey sauce on my bread puddings, but never rum sauce, and woefully, never VERY rum sauce. NOTED. :)

  23. Ah, such a brilliant british classic, perhaps I shall do it for the jubilee weekend! When I read that you skipped the croissant in the original Nigella recipe, I thought you were going to go on to say it's because you wanted to keep it healthy, but instead, it's because you never let a croissant go stale! Hah! Great philisophy!

  24. @ Shu Han: That's only because no matter how big a box of croissants I purchased, it never lasts more than 2 days around here. :D
