Bread and butter pudding is a popular, easy-to-make British dessert. It also happens to be a hot favourite at Mumbai’s Irani restaurants.

You start by making a custard-like sauce, pour it over bread, top it with raisins and nuts, sprinkle a bit of brown sugar and butter to get crunchy coat, and bake it to get a soothing, warm pudding !

6 fresh bread slices
1 1/2 tbsp butter
2 tbsp cornflour
3/4 cup sugar
2 cups milk
1/2 tsp vanilla essence
2 tbsp chopped walnuts (akhrot)
1 1/2 tbsp chopped raisins (kismis)
1 tbsp brown sugar
2 tbsp melted butter

For The Garnish
1/4 tsp nutmeg (jaiphal) powder

  1. Remove the crust from the bread slices, apply ½ tsp of butter on one side of each slice and cut each slice into 2 to 3 strips.
  2. Arrange the bread strips with the buttered side facing up on a greased 200 mm. (8') diameter oven-proof glass dish. Keep aside.
  3. Combine the cornflour and sugar along with ¼ cup of warm milk in a deep bowl and mix well till the sugar melts. Keep aside.
  4. Boil the remaining 1¾ cups of milk on a slow flame and gradually add the cornflour-sugar mixture, while stirring continuously so that no lumps remain.
  5. Add the vanilla essence, mix well and cook on a slow flame for 5 minutes or till the sauce thickens and becomes smooth, while stirring continuously. Remove from the flame and keep aside.
  6. Sprinkle the walnuts and raisins on the bread strips and pour the sauce evenly over them.
  7. Sprinkle the brown sugar evenly on top and pour the melted butter evenly over it.
  8. Bake in a pre-heated oven at 180°c (350°f) for 35 to 40 minutes.
  9. Serve hot garnished with nutmeg powder.

Handy tip:

    Handy tip:
  1. Since the pudding is served in the same dish in which it is baked, use a glass dish and not an aluminium baking dish.

i like the eggless version of the famous pudding. I chose to add custard powder instead of cornflour to add more flavour. i also reduced the sugar and it still tasted great. my version is here
