Best Bread Pudding recipe ever!

Posted on


Bread Pudding is super easy to prepare and great if you have bread which needs using up.  This recipe came from a family member and it's one of those 'throw it all in the bowl' jobs which means you can't really go wrong.


500g White or Wholemeal Bread

300g Mixed Dried Fruit

1 tsp Mixed Spice

600ml Whole Milk

2 Large Eggs, beaten

140g Light Brown Soft Sugar

100g Butter, melted

2 tbsp Demerera Sugar (for the top if desired)



• Tear the bread into a large mixing bowl and sprinkle on the spice.  

• Mix the eggs with the milk, pour on the bread with the sugar and scrunch it up with your fingers to mix it well.

• Add the fruit and leave the mixture to sit for 15 mins while the oven is pre-heating to 180C/160C fan.

• Butter and line a 20cm square tin.

• Stir in the melted butter and make sure it's all coated. 

• Tip it all into the tin, flatten and sprinkle with sugar if desired.

• Bake for about 90 minutes and put some foil on the top if it looks like it starting to burn.  


Please remember, every oven is different and the sqewer test will let you know if more time is needed.  Once it is out of the oven, leave it to cool on a wire rack and cut when cold.


Top Tips:

There are lots of other ingredients that can be added to jazz it up more including glace cherries, mixed peel, orange or lemon rind or grated fresh apple.

Chop up half of it and wrap individually so they can be put in the freezer and taken out as and when desired.

Happy Baking!

    This was great I made it last night. I adapted the recipe slightly to suit, but I never ever would have attempted to make it unless I saw your post. Thank you so much for sharing.
