bread & butter pudding

Postby Joanna » Thu Jul 12, 2012 12:24 pm

One of our oldtime favourites;can anyone tell me how to stop it from "collapsing" after coming out of the oven? It always looks so good all puffed up but then goes flat. I recently added some banana to it after a friend suggested it; tasted great.

I don't think you can stop it collapsing. It's just the nature of the beast.


Marmalade on the bread is good too.

But if it scalds on the way down Karen, it tends to take away the enjoyment of it.

I put sultanas in mine. Mum made one with croissants, but I found the texture too slimy for my liking!

I've never tried it but I've heard brioche is good. Don't fancy croissants either Karin.

Must be the season for old fashioned sweets,

I made a backed rice custard on Friday, very similar
to bread and butter pudding, it was yummm.
Can't believe i have left it so long to make again.

If you are making it with eggs and milk as the custard base, maybe some cornflour in it may stabilize it? You really need it to set to not sink, and then you would lose all the delicous creamy texture and it would be too dry. In a shallow dish it might go better as well.

I made one once with a sultana bread (breadmaker) that didnt cook properly since I put too much mixed fruit in it. The lumps of semi raw bread dough were excellent in a pudding. Still sank a bit though. Thats what custard and ice cream are for!
