Apple and Cinnamon Bread and Butter Pudding

February 16, 2012

High School
This is one of the first desserts I ever made.  I was taught how to make it at my high school during home economics.  I made it for my mum a few times after learning the basic recipe.  I would put in a variety of dried fruit and experiment with different breads as I was always a bigger fan on wholemeal and seeded breads.  This dessert is really comforting especially when served hot with a creamy hot custard.

This recipe was adapted from ‘’.Ingredients:

10 slices of Bread (take off top part of the crust and cut into triangles or any shape you prefer to layer dish with), 3 tbsps unslated Butter melted (or you can use a low fat margerine), 3 tbsps Dark Brown Sugar, 2 tsps Cinnamon, 3 Large Eggs lightly beaten, roughly 300ml Milk, 1 tbsp Maple Syrup, a tiny bit of Vanilla from a Vanilla Pod (so much better than vanilla flavouring, the real thing smells so beautiful!), 2 small Apples chopped and diced.  (Make sure you have extra of all of the ingredients because you may feel like a little more sweetness and it may not cover your entire dish as you may have larger slices of bread.)


1. Combine melted butter, brown sugar and cinnamon in a small bowl.
2. Layer first layer of bread in a lightly greased dish and drizzle some of the butter mixture of it.
3. The sprinkle some apple pieces.
4. Continue to do until you have 3 layers or you desired amount.
5. Sprinkle more apple over the top.
6. Beat the eggs, milk, maple syrup and vanilla.
7. Preheat oven to 320 degrees C.
8. Pour the mixture all over the bread and apple until the bread has absorbed the mixture.
9. Bake for 30 minutes.
10. Or you can place dish in a roasting tin which is filled halfway with very hot water.
11. The dish is done after the knife or fork test when the cutlery comes out clean.

For the healthy people

Eat the pudding with some low fat plain yoghurt rather than cream or custard.
