At Wahanda, we love a bit of Xmas pud – but we know not everyone does. If you fancy doing something a bit different this year, why not try this tasty treat? The last of our gluten and dairy-free recipes, this moreish bread and butter pudding is a great alternative to traditional Christmas fare. Serve after your turkey to get people’s mouths watering, or keep it for Boxing Day as an indulgent snack.
Aunt Libby’s Genius bread and butter pudding
You will need:
1. Soak the raisins and mixed peel in the rum or brandy then preheat the oven to 170°C/325°F/gas mark 3.
2. Butter the bread, cut each slice in half on the diagonal and arrange in the ovenproof dish.
3. Pour the milk and cream into a pan and bring to boil with the vanilla pod. Whisk the eggs and sugar together then whisk in the hot milk mixture. Scrape the vanilla pod seeds into the milk and discard the pod.
4. Sprinkle the soaked raisins, with any remaining rum or brandy and the mixed peel over the bread then pour over the custard.
5. Place the dish in a roasting tray on the middle shelf of the oven. Carefully pour water into the tray until it comes halfway up the sides of the ovenproof dish. Gently put the roasting tray into the middle of the oven and bake the pudding for 45 minutes or until lightly set and golden brown.
6. Warm the apricot jam, pass through a sieve to remove the fruit and brush liberally over the pudding. Dust with icing sugar and serve.
