This a an easy whip up option, great when your ealise you really do want dessert!

Ingredients (serves 6)

  • 50g butter
  • 12 slices white bread
  • 50g sultanas
  • 4 eggs
  • 175g caster sugar
  • 300ml pouring cream
  • 300ml thickened cream
  • 1 tsp Vanilla essence
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp Nutmeg


  1. Lightly butter a 2-litre baking dish. Butter the bread, remove the crusts, then cut each slice into 2 triangles. Arrange triangles in layers in the dish, then sprinkle the sultanas in between layers. Don't put any sultanas on the top layer as they will burn.
  2. Whisk together the eggs, egg yolks and caster sugar. Place both creams in a saucepan with the vanilla and bring to scalding point. Pour cream over the egg mixture and whisk lightly to combine. Strain mixture over bread slices, making sure not to dislodge them. Set pudding aside for at least 30 minutes - this ensures that the pudding will be light and not stodgy.
  3. Place the baking dish in a large roasting pan and pour enough boiling water into the pan to come halfway up the sides of the baking dish. Cover the dish loosely with foil, place in the oven and bake for 15 minutes. Remove the foil and bake the pudding uncovered for a further 15 minutes or until golden


You can also substitute the bread for rice and turn it into a rice pudding
