Bread Pudding is a classic British Dessert, delicious hot or cold and fantastic with a drizzle of homemade custard. 

This is a very simple recipe, You don't need to be a good cook to get great results. You'll also find there will be no use of mixing spoons in this as you will be using your hands!

Lets get started!

Makes 12 portions:

1 Small loaf of stale bread or half a stale french stick.

50g of vegetable suet (Or beef if your not veggie, whichever is fine)
3 Eggs
300ml milk
1L water (For soaking the bread with the milk)
1 Tbsp Butter (Melted)
1 Tsp mixed spice

You will also need,

Large mixing bowl

Fantastic! Really like the way you put this together...

When I clean my <a href="http://www.ugglinks.com/" rel="nofollow"><b>UGG Boots</b></a>, I always be so careful and gentle. I perfer use my hands to other instruments. I suggest to use Diaopai soap than other detergents because I think Diaopai soap can wash my <a href="http://www.ugglinks.com/ugg-30th-anniversary-c-65.html" rel="nofollow"><b>UGG Classic Boots</b></a> so clean and white. First, you should make Diaopai soap full foaming and then use your hands to make your boots be full of bubble. All these are done and then you can use your hands to constant rubbing on the surface, which is in order to make your boots new.

Suet for cooking is not something readily available in the US.&nbsp; Is there a substitute?
The suet is only really there for the fat so you could grate some lard or use 1/4 of a cup of butter.<br />
my other half works in a sandwich shop where they cut the ends off of the hard rolls they make the sandwichs on, the bits are usually just tossed out but occasionally I'll have her bring a bag home and make a bread pudding a lot like yours but with out the long soak time. I use 6 beaten eggs, 2pints of&nbsp;heavy cream and a package of vanilla pudding (not instant) add in enough bread pieces to absorb the liquid, raisens or dried cranberries go in then place in a baking dish and into the oven .<br /> <br /> &nbsp;You version looks flatter and not as chunky but it looks tasty, I think I'll give it a try next time
I would bring them home to make breadcrumbs with you can then freeze them and they last for ages, and cranberries sound lovely I'll have to add that to mine :P<br /> <br /> If you do make it be sure to take a picture for me! :)<br />
That would be a good idea but they trim both ends off of 5-8 dozen rolls a day... thats a LOT&nbsp;of bread crumbs!&nbsp; We bake some with garlic powder, like a big crouton, for cheese spreads etc and little ones come by for duck/seagull treats but theres still an over abundence every day. <br /> <br /> &nbsp;Next time I make bread pudding I'll do an &quot;ible&quot; of my variation, one cool side benefit of doing a recipe &quot;ible&quot; is my family have accessed the site to get the recipes...and then found others.....
This looks super, but it's not the Bread &amp; Butter pudding I know. There you arrange slices of buttered-bread with the dry ingredients in a dish, pour the eggs &amp; milk over and bake.<br /> <br /> L<br />
Yes, bread pudding is very different from it's friend bread and butter pudding.<br /> <br /> Thank you L.<br />
Right, I get it. This pudding I don't know, but it makes still me feel like pudding....<br /> <br /> L<br />
Excellent. What is in the &quot;Mixed Spice&quot; or does anyone know a North American equivalent?<br />
It's a mix of cinnamon, coriander, caraway, ginger, fennel, nutmeg, cloves and turmeric.<br /> <br /> In a pinch you could you just cinnamon, I'm sure it would come out just fine!<br />
Awesome pictures! Nice job.<br />
Thank you, I've had my DSLR for almost a year now and I'm just starting to get the hang of it :P<br />
<br /> <p>Bread pudding is great and I like your Instructable!&nbsp; <br /> <br /> Although I don't have any British ancestors who could have passed this classic&nbsp;recipe on, we have our own variation.<br /> Probably not as refined as yours, but we eat it like a cake&nbsp;at all hours of&nbsp;the day (I even give it to my children for school).<br /> <br /> I always use old bread that I freeze at regular intervals until I have enough (maybe an Idea?).<br /> <br /> * break 300g of old bread. Soak it in 0,5 liter hot milk (to&nbsp;which 200g of sugar is added).<br /> * squash it with the backside of a fork until you have a nice mushy mixture.<br /> *&nbsp;In a separate bowl, whisk 5 eggs, add 75g of raisins, a bit of cinnamon and a spoonful vanilla custard.<br /> * mix it with the bread, pour into a cake container and put it 45 minutes in the oven (200C).<br /> &nbsp;</p>
Wow, that really is quite similar! Also I freeze bread pretty much a slice at a time, it takes ages to get a full loaf though :P<br /> <br /> Thank you for your comment!<br />
Oh and I always put a slice of it in my lunchbox too :)<br />
