Bread and Jam Pudding Recipe with raspberry or apricot jam
Bread and Jam Pudding Recipe.
Here is a great tasting Pudding-Desert-Sweet to tempt your taste buds!
I know there are a number of Bread Puddings Recipes around and you probably have your own favorite. but this is the recipe that I use for my family and believe me they all tell me it is terrific!
- 2 x eggs
- 2 x desert spoons of sugar white or raw.
- 5 x slices of bread white. Home made bread is also very nice to use.
- 1 x teaspoon vanilla essence
- 4 x cups milk.
- raspberry jam - as much as you think, depending on your taste.
- sultanas - as many as you want depending on your taste.
- nutmeg or cinnamon - either one, to sprinkle on the top.
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.
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. :) :)
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.
