What size cooker is best for this

I grew up on bread and butter pudding and I’m not a fan of this recipe. The ratio of bread to eggs wasn’t right for me, too eggy, I prefer it heavier. Maybe one less egg, less milk and 2 more pieces of bread? And it needed more spices. I wouldn’t make it again, my family didn’t finish it. Even adding blueberries didn’t redeem it for us.

Sounds like yours cooks a little hotter so yep just reduce time x

Cooked this last night in my new 1.5 litre sc, had cooked a rice pudding beforehand, turned out great. Followed the directions for B&B pudding, tea towel etc, greased the bowl, the bottom and side burned, the rest dose beautifully, would it work if I used baking paper to stop the burn. It burned after 90 minutes as opposed to 2 hours

Oh my life, a dessert that’s taken me back to my childhood! It got a resounding 9/10 from my family so safe to say I shall be making it again.

Kids have given this the thumbs up! I used my 1.5l SC and reduced the amounts by approx 1/2 and we have leftovers, but not sure if they’ll last until morning once hubby gets home! Used raisin loaf instead of normal bread, cut down the sugar and left out the nutmeg because I didn’t have it.

This was a success in my home tonight. First time I’ve ever made a bread and butter pudding of any sort! Definitely make again.

We love this pudding !!
I used my 6.5L sc.
I add raspberry jam and some frozen raspberries. (No sultanas for us) Then increase the other quantities accordingly and add 6-8 eggs.
A firm favourite at home.

Also very nice to use raison bread and to spread your bread with jam, nutella or marmalade for a different taste….

Made with chocolate chips in place of sultanas but apart from that I followed recipe exactly and it turned out perfect.
