  1. I made this last night for desert. First time ever making bread and butter putting and I did it in my slow cooker. It was amazing.
    Thanks for sharing your recipe. ?

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

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

    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.

  5. 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.

  6. 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.

  7. 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.

  8. 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

  9. 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.

  10. 5 stars
    Made this today, smells so yummy, I used raisin bread in stead of plain and I never added the sultana’s as had raisins in it all ready , can’t wait for dessert tonight
