Bread & Butter Pudding

Serves:  6


8 slices Sasko Premium White or Best of Both or low Gi White Bread

50g butter (at room temp)

50g raisins

2 eggs

300ml full cream milk

100ml fresh cream

50g sugar

1tsp vanilla extract

½tsp Allspice mixed with 1tbsp sugar

Cream/custard to serve




  1. Butter all 8 slices of bread and cut each piece into 4 triangles.
  2. Lay the triangles, point side facing upwards, into a medium-sized baking dish (+- 20 by 10cm) in layers, scattering raisins between.
  3. In a bowl, mix together eggs, milk, cream, sugar and vanilla and pour over the bread.
  4. Lastly, sprinkle over the spiced sugar.
  5. Allow to sit for 10-15 minutes while you preheat the oven to 180C.
  6. Bake in the oven for 40-45 min.
  7. Serve hot with cream or custard.


Variation: For a chocolate-orange version: Use chocolate chips instead of raisins and orange zest instead of allspice


  • You can also smear some of your favourite jam or marmalade onto each slice of bread for added flavour.
  • If you aren’t sure if the pudding is set, insert the tip of a knife into the centre and if it comes out clean then the pudding is done.
