  • 1 x teaspoon vanilla essence

Method.

Spread a layer of jam on each slice of bread, cut into 4 strips then cut across the middle, 8 pieces in all.
I cut a lot of the crusts off, but that is not necessary, repeat with other 4 slices of bread.

Lightly grease a Pyrex dish then put a layer of bread pieces covering the bottom of dish,sprinkle with sultanas, then another layer of bread,then sprinkle with sultanas until all bread is used finishing with sultanas on top.

In a separate bowl beat eggs, sugar and vanilla essence with a hand whisk until sugar is dissolved, then add milk gradually whisking all the time.

Pour this mixture slowly over the top of bread holding bread down with the whisk so that it absorbs the mixture and the bread is not floating on the top sprinkle with a little nutmeg or cinnamon to taste

or if you do not like either, just leave it off.

Cook in oven at 185-190 degrees for 1 hour - 1hour 20 minutes. Electric and gas ovens do vary a little in temperature so pudding may take a little longer depending on the type of oven you are using.

Unfortunately it does tend to sink when taken out of the oven.

Serving suggestions.

Top with pure cream, yogurt or ice cream!

On top of that you may like to add a couple of strawberries, blackberries or any berries you like!
Serves 4 or 5 at a stretch. It is also nice cold and will keep covered in the fridge for a couple of days.

Don't forget, If you prefer, you can use apricot or blackberry jam!

I hope you enjoy this delicious Bread and Jam Pudding as much as we do. :) :)

If you spread a layer of jam on a slice of bread, the tendency is to eat it as usually I do in the morning. Any way the photos made my mouth watery and I will surely try it tomorrow. Thanks for the recipe.

dinkin53. Hi. The only answer I can think of is to make an extra slice, it is tempting to eat it as you are making this Bread and Jam Pudding, I have actually done that.

I would love to know what you think, when you make it.

Thank you so much for your comment it is very much appreciated, and it put a smile on my face to start the day. :) :)

It's sure that you won't stop by having 1 or 2 slices. The ultimate result is losing the interest to make pudding by eating enough slices of bread and jam!!!!!

Candie V. Hi. I did not realize that Sultana's were not well known in America.

I will find an explanation and an image to let you know what Sultana's look like.

Thank you for your comment. :)

dinkan53 Hi. Yes that sounds like it could be right.

But just think of what you could be missing out on by eating all the bread and jam before you get to make and taste the Bread and Jam Pudding , You may decide that you like it better, especially with the added flavor of the Sultanas.

Thank you for your great comment. :) :)

Oliversmum this Bread and Jam pudding is one of my favorites.

I especially like it with the ice cream and blueberries, they just add that bit of bite to the taste.

Now that it is officially winter here in Australia I will have to do some sweet talking to get another Bread and Jam Pudding cooked.

Judging by the comments the bakeries around the world will have to get busy baking more bread! Thumbs up from me!

Agvulpes. Hi There. Yes I know, when the Ice Cream melts a little and the Blue berries sink into it, this Bread and Jam Pudding takes on a whole new flavor.

They say it's officially Winter , but the days are more like Spring.

I will have to get all my Winter Pudding Recipe's out and get busy making them. Lemon Pudding first. OK.

Sweet talk would be nice, Oh my I like that idea.

You are right The Fresh Bake Bakeries will be pretty busy from now on.

Thanks for A great comment, its nice when you drop by and read my hubs. :) :) (hug)

Jane Bovary. Hi. Yes I guess it is, But it is a Pudding that you can experiment with.

The choice of toppings, berries or any fruit that you like, gives it a different flavor each time you make it.

Yes Apricot jam is very nice. It's great when you make A Pudding that will do for two nights, I'm liking that idea more and more.

Thank you for your lovely comment, It is very much appreciated. :) :)

Wow, I've never thought about adding jam instead of butter to a pudding it sounds delicious.......and I just happen to have some bread that needs to be used up :)


oliversmum profile image

oliversmum 6 years ago from australia Author

lou16. Hi. Yes jam gives it a whole new flavor, a lot tastier than just having butter.

Apricot jam is also very nice. It is a great way to use up any excess bread as well.

Thank you for stopping by and leaving a lovely comment. :) :)

Journey * Hi. It is a great pudding with the option on using the jam of your choice, a sprinkle of nuts or cinnamon or both, that makes it just a little different. Thank you for your comment. :) :)

This looks like a tasty dessert and quite easy to make. I love raspberries so know that flavor would be good but it is very versatile as to what people most enjoy. That photo at the top with the ice cream and blueberries certainly makes one want to dig in and enjoy it! Thanks for your recipe. Will be pinning this one!

oliversmum 19 months ago from australia Author

Peggy W. Hi. It is a nice pudding hot or cold, yes raspberries have a unique flavor. We have also tried it with fig jam and quince jelly, not too bad, but always seem to come back to raspberry. It is very easy to make. Thank you for your comment and pin. :) :)

    What is a Sultana

    From what my research shows me Sultanas are actually  'raisins' which in turn are grapes.
    Sultanas should be made from the Sultana grape but it is not unusual for the Thomson Seedless grape to be used in production!

    The grape, however different to the raisin, is treated with sulphur dioxide and heated artificially staying lighter, moister, and plumper, and these are what are sold as golden raisins or sultanas.
     Sultanas to my taste are sweeter and less acid than other raisins. For a more detailed description I have included the Wikipedia link.
