Bread and Butter Pudding

Nuvita Biscuits

One of the easiest puddings to make. This bread and butter pudding with raisins, pistachio and saffron is a delight to eat.


  • 250ml double cream
  • 65 ml milk
  • 50 g caster sugar
  • 3-4 saffron strands
  • 3 eggs
  • A little butter for greasing
  • 6 slices white bread, buttered and sliced into 4 triangles
  • 50 g ready-to-eat dried papaya, finely chopped (Here papaya has been substituted for the sultanas or raisins. But you could also try dried apricots or even mangoes.)
  • 25 g pistachio nuts, crushed


Preheat the oven to 180º C / 350º F / Gas Mark 4.

Mix the cream with the milk and add the sugar and saffron strands.

Whisk the eggs and add them to the cream mixture.

Butter a deep ovenproof dish 15cm x 22cm / 6in x 9in, put into it a layer of bread, then sprinkle over some papaya/raisins/apricots/mangoes and nuts.

Add another layer of bread then some more nuts and papaya.

Pour the cream mixture over the bread and put the dish into the oven for 30-35 minutes, until the surface is a rich golden brown.

Serve immediately.
Tip: Add a pinch of nutmeg and another of cinnamon to the cream mixture.

    I’m thinking maybe a bread pudding… Can you think of anything else or have any suggestions on the bread pudding idea?

    I have been requested to bring a bread pudding to Easter dinner with my family. they know that I have never made this before, but also know that most of my experiments turn out pretty well. I know that I am not interested in a hard sauce (multiple people in my family have issues when using alcohol in sauces) or a lemon sauce and my preference is a recipe that includes the use of raisins, as that style of bread pudding has always been my favorite. Any help you all could provide me would be greatly appreciated.
