An Easy and Quick Recipe To Use Up Stale Bread

Both my Mother and Nan were great cooks and they both made the most delicious, hearty and warming puddings!

My Nan always use to say, 'keep the basic's in your pantry and if you have got eggs in the house - you can always cook something'

Nan never use to waste anything - this is a great recipe to use up bread.

Cooking Time

Preparation time - 15 minutes

Cooking time - 50 minutes

Serves - 6 people

Ingredients

  • 6 slices white or brown bread
  • Butter
  • 2 eggs
  • 3/4 pint milk
  • 4 - 5 tablespoons dried fruit mixture
  • Sprinkle nutmeg (optional)
  • 2 - 3 tablespoons sugar
  • Oven temperature 350 F or 180 C

Instructions

  1. Wash the mixed dried fruit and dry. If you prefer, you can just use sultanas or currants.
  2. Cut off the crusts. Butter the slices of bread and cut into four.
  3. Loosely arrange the pieces of bread in an ovenproof dish. Sprinkle with sugar Scatter a spoonful of dried fruit on top Repeat the layers to fill the dish
  4. Lightly beat the eggs in a bowl
  5. Heat the milk in a saucepan and remove from heat just before boiling.
  6. Pour the milk into the bowl of beaten eggs and mix lightly
  7. Pour the milk mixture over the bread.
  8. Sprinkle the top of the mixture with nutmeg (optional)
  9. Bake in the oven for 50 minutes until risen and golden.

A Warming Pudding on a Cold Day Straight from the oven!

I remember as a child salivating, as the kitchen was filled with the aroma of pudding baking.....

Dinner would be eaten in double quick time and as my patience faded, I would beg my mother to take the pudding out of the oven! she would always say, 'it's hardly cooked' but it always was!

She'd dish the pudding up, steaming in the bowls - far too hot to get anywhere near, so we would walk up and down the garden path a few times with our bowls in our hands waiting for it to cool down!

Bread and butter pudding tastes pretty good cold too.

Enjoy!

      Hi Derdriu, I also have a recipe for just 'Bread' pudding, where you soak the bread first, crusts are ideal for this recipe because the soaking softens them - I guess this will be my next recipe hub, it is delicious!!

      The dried fruit mix I use, contains sultanas, currants, candied peel and raisins, the brand is Whitworths over here.

      I can't say I have ever served a drink with the pudding, which makes me think - why not?

      It's always good to see you, I hope all is well with you, thank you for reading and your continued support, best wishes Lesley

      Derdriu 4 years ago

      Lesley, Is there a recipe for recycling the crusts cut from fresh and left-over breads?

      What dried fruit mix do you favor, and what do you serve to drink with this scrumptious treat?

      Respectfully, and with many thanks and all the votes, Derdriu

      This sounds pretty doggoned good, and easy. I do have my mother's bread pudding recipe, and I make it for a winter dessert. All year, I toss the bread heels in the freezer, then cube them up so I can use them in cooking (not just for puddings, you know!).

      I think this dish of yours would be even better served with a generous splash of cold heavy cream. ;-) That's what I put on my bread pudding recipe...besides..it tempers the heat, and you can eat it sooner. LOL

      These sounds darn good. I am going to be spending all my time in the kitchen if I don't watch out.

      I love the sound of this recipe, Lesley! My mother used to make a version without the dried fruit and butter which we called bread pudding. It was one of my favorite desserts - I was so happy when she decided to make it! Your version sounds delicious too. I'm looking forward to trying it very much.

      Oh this sounds so good. I remember having this as a child but have not had it in many years. Will have to try your recipe soon.

      Opps, no eggs in the fridge. I'm going to print your great recipe this easy to follow ininstructions, because this reminds of my Mum's. I think if my memory is serving me okay we used to have hot custard of it, how about you?

      Vote up and awesome, Joyce.

      Leslie, beautiful bread pudding. I love bread pudding but did not know how to make it. My daughter and I always get lots when we go to eat at someplace that has it. Thanks for showing me how to make it. I think we will have some for dessert tonight.

      Good old English pudding! Just a few basic ingredients can make such a heavenly dessert. My mom taught me the same one- except that we tear up the bread into smaller pieces and soak in milk. Voted up and shared.

      Hi Jackie, what a shame you haven't got your Mother's bread pudding recipe...

      I think pudding is always tastier straight from the oven!

      This recipe is so quick and easy to make, I hope you try it - I have never made it with oat bread, but I am sure it will taste just fine!

      Many thanks for your votes and share, best wishes Lesley
