One of my dads all time favourite puddings (alongside Black Forest) is bread pudding.
For weeks and weeks now he’s been going on at me to make him a bread pudding. I’ve had a ton of bakes on my list to do that I’ve prioritised but I finally got round to making him one. Do I feel guilty that I didn’t make one straight away when he asked? After seeing his face light up when I gave him a slice, YES, yes I do! Haha.
Whilst making the bread pudding i realised that it is a proper autumnal treat! (Which is a bonus as it means I can share my recipe with you guys and it ties in with my autumnal bakes).
It’s filled with different spices which gives this bake a proper warm feel to it. It’s a very homely bake, which is the perfect treat to eat whilst these long, cold nights are here.
Eaten hot with custard and cream… oh my days it’s delicious. Mind you, if that isn’t your vibe, that’s okay, you can eat this cold also. It’s a very versatile bake which I think you guys will love.

Ingredients You Need:
- Loaf Of Stale White Bread
- 250g Of Dried Fruit (Raisins & Sultanas)
- 130g Of Golden Syrup
- 130g Of Suet
- 2 Eggs, Beaten
- 1tbsp Of Cinnamon
- 2tsp Of Nutmeg
How To Make Bread Pudding:
- Firstly, gather together your equipment and ingredients and grease a rectangle glass casserole dish with butter.
- Secondly, cut your slices of stale bread into pieces and soak in water for around half an hour.
- Whilst your bread is soaking, in a large bowl add 250g of dried fruit, 130g of suet 130g of golden syrup, 1tbsp of cinnamon and 2tsp of nutmeg.
- Just before the 30 minutes is up, preheat your oven to 200C / 180C Fan / Gas Mark 4.
- Once your bread has soaked for 30 minutes, squeeze the bread until it’s relatively dry and then combine with the mixed fruit etc, in the large bowl.
- Next, mix in your two beaten eggs.
- TIP: By this point you should have a very softish mixture that drops off your spoon, if you don’t, add a dash of milk until you reach this consistency.
- Pour your bread pudding mixture into your greased dish and place in the oven for 1-1.5 hours. You will know when it’s cooked as a skewer inserted into the centre of the pudding will come out clean and the top will be browned.
- Finally, when your bread pudding is baked, leave to cool in the dish for at least an hour before cutting into slices.
That’s your Bread Pudding prepared, soaked, baked and ready for you to demolish!
Let’s just say, my dad was overjoyed with his bread pudding, from the smile on his face, I gather it tasted pretty darn good.
Let me know if you make this yourself and what your thoughts were on it. Did you enjoy it? Do you find it to be a autumnal dream?
Sending you all tons of love & hugs as always,
