Bread Pudding

A delicious British tea time treat. Very moreish.. but with all that fruit, it's almost a health food!

Method

Break the bread into small chunks and cover with water, leave to soak for around 30-40 minutes. Drain the bread and squeeze out any excess water with your hands(this gets a little messy!)

Transfer the bread to a mixing bowl and mix the bread with the rest of the ingredients.

Pour into a greased 8" square baking tin and cook at 180C/gas 4 for 1.15 - 1.30 hrs or until firm to the touch and brown on top. If it looks like it is browning too quickly, add a piece of grease proof paper to the tin.

Allow to cool for 30 mins or so in the tin before cutting into squares.

This can be serve warm or cold. We always had ours cold.

It's a great recipe to make with children, always lots of fun squishing the water from the bread.

I always used to use up stale bread by making a bread pudding and used a recipe passed to me from my mum. I haven't made it for ages, couldn't find recipe so looked online. This is the one which is most similar, but instead of mixed spice I just used some nutmeg and lemon pee and melt the marg. Delicious cold as you say and even healthier with brown bread and sugar.
This is very similar to a recipe my Dad use to use so i must try it , ir sounds lovely ..My Dad made the best bread pudding, sadly he is no longer here for me to ask him but i'm sure he used Lard instead of suet ...not healthy i know but back then we knew no better, but boy did it taste good.
my mum used to make bread pudding for my brother and myself.But sadly after she died I lost the recipe.This one seemed to be the same except I used milk inplace of water and lard not marg,wich is what mum used.You have my brothers approval and mine that this pudding taste just like "Mums" did. Many Thanks. From Zante.
