Method

My Nan's Old Fashioned Bread Pudding is a community recipe submitted by Violet and has not been tested by Nigella.com so we are not able to answer questions regarding this recipe.

  1. In a big pot heat the milk, butter, fruit and sugar (don't let it boil).
  2. I use my Magimix to turn the bread into crumbs, add breadcrumbs mixed spice and vanilla, stir well.
  3. Heat the oven to 160°C Fan. Grease well a roasting tin and empty the mixture into, spread well into all corners, then dot the top with butter in small amounts, cover with a piece of foil so fruit does not burn (remove this 10 mins before end of cooking time)
  4. Cook for 45 - 55 mins, or until golden brown and smelling yummy! You can serve this with a cuppa or have as a dessert with some custard. Happy cooking!

  • I have just baked this using Warburtons gluten free bread. I baked it at 160 for 45 mins covered and a further 15 mins uncovered. It’s delicious. My mum won’t be able to tell the difference :-)

  • This is the best and most easiest recipe for bread pudding and tastes just the same like my dear late mother used to make. My friends love it. I cook it on gas mark 5 for 50mins then leave the foil off for the last 20mins. Mm... Scrumptious.

  • This is lovely, just like my mom used to make . I cooked at 180C for 30mins covered in foil..then removed foil for an extra 20 mins and it turned out lovely.

  • I have just made this and it is delicious. It took me back to my childhood as my mum loved it and made it a lot. I did add some brandy to the mix though! I cooked it in my fan oven at 180C by the way and that seemed just right. thanks for posting
