    Bread and Butter Pudding is a true comfort food. This recipe is made with Panettone, an Italian Christmas cake. Or you can just use normal bread. Serves six.

    Ingredients:

    Half Panettone (sliced and lightly buttered then placed overlapping in a shallow baking dish)
    500ml cream
    500ml milk
    1 vanilla pod split and seeds scraped out
    2 whole eggs
    6 egg yolks
    200g sugar
    4 tbsp apricot jam
    Icing sugar for dusting

    Method:

    Place the milk, cream and vanilla pod in a saucepan and bring to the boil.

    Whisk the eggs, egg yolks and sugar. Whisk the milk onto the egg yolk and sugar mix.

    Pour the custard over the sliced Panettone and bake in low oven (150C) for 20-25 minutes until just set.

    Brush with the apricot jam and dust with the icing sugar.
    Serve warm or at room temperature.

    This recipe is from Darren Simpson, Head Chef Aqua Luna Restaurant, Circular Quay, Sydney.

    Gabriel Gate's Bread & Butter Pudding Recipe

    Serves about 6-8

    Degree of difficulty: Medium

    You need:

    2 or 3 Croissants
    This very simple recipe can be made using either fresh or leftover panettone and croissants. You can also add dried fruits of your choice if you wish. Adjust the quantities to suit the size of your baking dish.

    200g (8 oz) pannetone
    4 eggs
    3 cups milk
    2 tbsp cream (optional)
    1 tbsp rum (optional)
    2 tbsp brown sugar



    Method:

    You need an oven dish about 20cm x 30cm (8in x 12in) for this quantity.

    Preheat oven to 180 degrees Celsius (350 degrees Fahrenheit).

    Cut croissants and panettone into slices and fit them neatly into the oven dish.

    In a bowl mix eggs with milk, cream and rum. Pour this liquid over the croissants and panettone. Sprinkle with brown sugar and bake in the oven until set. It takes about 20-30 Mins.

    Serving Suggestion: Serve warm or cold.


    And next my weight watchers version LOL!

    WW Bread & No Butter Pudding

    I have made this and I thought it was a great substitute for the full fat version, and if you like you can serve it with no fat custard or some vanilla fruche or lf frozen yoghurt or icecream

    I've never seen a recipe for fruit salad with almond flour/paste in it. Does it come out more like Bircher muesli than a traditional fruit salad?

    It comes out like a creamy sort of fruit salad but not acidic, it is really easy to eat and tastes good IMHO. There's no museli in this one, but I'm certain it would taste good with museli too.

    how about this.....

    jam swiss roll
    custard
    cream
    tinned fruit
    jelly flavour of your choice
    plenty of sherry ( \/ )

    line a bowl with slices of jam swiss roll and splash with sherry. Place alternate layers of the custard, cream, fruit and jelly and more sherry splashed cake. Make top layer of custard and more cream on top.

    Sprinkle with grated chocolate if you like.

    This is what my nanna makes soooooooooo well. Hope it helps

    1 pkt port wine Jelly
    1/2 pint custard
    1 tin fruit ****tail
    cream for decorating
    strawberries (or other fruit to decorate)
    1/2 c sherry

    1. Line dish with swiss rolls (halved).
    2. Pour cherry over swiss rolls and leave overnight.

    4. Pour hot custard over fruit.

    7 if necessary repeat layers & top with cream & strawberries.

    Can I just say its DELISH! We had this ever since I was a little tike! And you can change the recipe slightly, instead of tinned fruit use fresh strawberries/rasberries...and shavings of white chocolate inbetween the fruit & cream

    You ladies are quick! Wonderful....thanks so much!!! (I think all my nanna's recipes were in her head unfortunately & as she passed away when I was just a young'un, I wasn't interested in having her teach me to cook, but I really wish I did)

    Oh, I don't know if I can wait until Christmas to make the trifle...I want it now!!! Y'know it's the best thing eaten as a midnight snack straight from the bowl, by the fridge light. Oooooh, naughty!

    Default Looking for yummy bread pudding recipe

    I used to have a good one that my ex-SIL gave me. Can't very well ask her to resend to me now!

    Have had two years of withdrawal symptoms.

    PLUS I am not the best at recipes so will need to be idiot-proof! Any help would be most appreciated.

    love

    Sushee,

    Is bread pudding like bread and butter pudding? If so, I posted a request a little while ago that some people replied to that had great easy recipes. Just keep flipping the pages back and you'll find the post.

    Let me know if you have any probs if this is what you wanted.

    Nell
