bread and butter pudding

Doughnut bread and butter pudding with strawberries and almonds

Right so I don’t usually do this but I do know that not everyone has a whole lot of time these days before dinner parties. At the end of the day my blog is about teaching you how to cook without the recipe as well as to know how to make simple things taste amazing!

So here is the first of two recipes that both involve store bought cinnamon and sugar doughnuts. Mine come from Woolworths but I am positive any fresh cinnamon and sugar doughnut that is light and fluffy will do. 


6 cinnamon doughnuts, torn

50 grams salted butter, softened

3 extra large eggs

75 grams castor sugar

1 teaspoon (5 ml) vanilla essense

1 cup (250 ml) milk

1 cup (250 ml) cream

1/2 cup Strawberries roasted with butter and caster sugar, to serve.

50 grams chopped almonds


Preheat an oven to 180 degrees celcius

Place the torn doughnut in a dish and dot with the butter.

In a bowl, whisk the eggs, caster sugar, vanilla essence, milk and cream together well.

Pour the milk and egg mixture over the doughnuts and bake in the oven for 30 minutes or until the custard is set.

Place strawberries in a small saucepan over a medium heat, sprinkle with castor sugar and add a knob of butter. Let them soften and remove from heat once sugar has dissolved.

Serve warm with roasted strawberries, almonds and whipped cream if you wish!
