It's very simple and doesn't make what I'd call a good bread and butter pudding but in it's own way it is a great time saver and fine for a quick pud after a long day at work. I used Alpro soya custard because I needed it to be dairy free, and it all worked fine.

Hi folks I want to surprise my wife Susan with this recipe for dinner tonight & being a novice, I see ' nutrition per serving' but can't for the life of me find how much a serving is, can anyone help?

Bread and butter pudding was requested and as I was short on time I thought I'd try this. I thought it was OK but it didn't go down with my (usually easygoing) family. Lots was left and I'll try a more traditional one next time!

Didn't like this at all. I cooked mine for longer than 35 mins and it still didn't set like traditional bread & butter pudding. Didn't taste anywhere near as good as traditional recipe.

Personally I would call this Bread and Butter Pudding rather than Bread Pudding which for me is made very differently but still using up left over bread.

I was looking for an easy bread pudding recipe for my leftover bread. Used this recipe, add a bit off cinnamon, nutmeg and 2 tbs of caster sugar to the mixture. Cook for about an hour or so for it to cook properly. Overall I am not crazy about it but it's a good recipe for my leftover bread!

Great. Did need extra cooking but we liked it a bit runny. I blow torched the sugar and it gave it a lovely brulee style.

Small portions though. Mary

Didnt like it at all. Nothing like a traditional bread and butter pud. Id much rather take longer making it and get a good flavour

If you really like Bread & butter pudding, AVOID THIS. It really is not very nice, especially if you compare it to a real traditional version.

We have this so often!! its the easiest tastiest pudding. I use crustless 50/50 bread and taste the difference custard, the type of custard does make a difference, used cheap before and though still tasty nowhere near as good. Usually add some extra fruit. Never had a problem with the cooking times. Its just as nice the next day - I make just the same amount for the 2 of us as I would 4!!!
