Make sandwiches with butter and nuttella then cut into bits and pop into a dish.Sprinkle over some frozen raspberries and pour over a custart made with eggs, milk/cream, sugar.1 egg will see 1 cup milk however I prefer it a little more eggy.Sugar to taste.Let sit of 30 mins and then slowly bake.Yum

True B'n'B pudding doesn't have an egg, that's Queen Pudding.

Not so according to my Mrs Beetons Book of Household Management (1906) her recipe has 5 or 6 thin slices of bread and butter, 1 pint of milk, 2 eggs, 1 dessertspoonful of sugar, sultanas, currants or candied lemon if liked.

The average cost is said to be 6d to 8d and sufficient for 4 to 5 persons.

I've never seen a recipe without eggs before. It's supposed to be an egg custard. I googled Bread & Butter Pudding & all the recipes that came up had eggs.

lx4000, May 7, 8:39am
always made mine with milk and eggs and cinnamon! along with fruit loaf:) Would be interested in the egg free one please!

kuaka, May 7, 8:39am
and Queen Pudding as I understand it, is made with left over stale cake, and anything else that you like to chuck in, including eggs, two or three whole eggs and a couple of egg yolks, put in the baking dish or cake tin, or whatever you're cooking it in, baked briefly, then spread with jam and then spread with meringue made from the egg whites that you didn't use, then baked again.

jessie981, May 7, 8:39am
o.k. Guess it is perference. I don't like a custard pudding so maybe why eggs were never used.

It's not a matter of preference IMO - it depends on whether the pudding is a bread and butter pudding or a bread pudding/cake, and my understanding is that a Queen Pudding has the custard made with the egg yolks while the whites are used for the meringue topping for the pudding.:-))

Gosh you guys. Now I want bread and butter pudding !

gemini68, May 7, 8:46am
Made the usual way but modern twist with chopped dried apricots or cranberries sprinkled on top instead of sultanas.Or rizzled with chocalate. Yum Yumm!

kuaka, May 7, 8:56am
I really have to laugh.This question comes up so many times, and there are so many people who have their own opinion (which of course they always think is right) and what one person calls "bread and butter pudding" another calls "bread pudding" and yet another calls "queen pudding".I know I'm right (with tongue firmly in cheek) and at the end of the day as long as you know what you're doing and you enjoy it, does it really matter what you call it - unless of course you're cooking and serving for royalty or the like - if it's only for family and friends, what the heck. One of my favourite puddings was one my gran (and her sister) used to make.It was simply stewed apple, with a white vanilla sauce poured over it and baked.When I asked what it was called they just looked blank.It didn't have a name, but it was yummy!

You obviously didn't read what I wrote at #14 - where it says about the meringue on top of the pudding!

From the stuff website :)

1 loaf white bread, crusts removed and sliced

100g butter, softened

2 medium cooking apples, peeled

1/4C raisins (I used muscatels)

3 eggs, beaten

1/2C caster sugar

1C cream

Preheat the oven to 170 degrees Celsius. Butter the bread on both sides and arrange in a baking dish.

Slice and core the apple and tuck in among the bread slices then scatter over the raisins.

Beat together eggs, sugar and cream then pour over the bread, pressing so the liquid is absorbed.

Bake for 25-30 minutes until custard is just set.

Serves: four (especially with icecream).

Preparation time: 10 minutes.

Cooking time: 30 minutes.

Try it with croissants and add cocoa powder to the custard mix
