    • 400g sliced raisin bread loaf, crusts cut off
    • 30g (1oz) butter, softened
    • 500g tub fresh vanilla custard
    • 300ml (½pt) double cream
    • 1 tbsp sugar


    • Preheat oven to 200°C (400°F, gas mark 6). Cut each slice of bread into triangles, butter one side and arrange, buttered-side up, in a buttered ovenproof dish.

    • Gently heat custard with cream until just warm. Pour over the bread, pressing down slightly to make sure the custard is absorbed.

    • Sprinkle with sugar and bake for 30-40 mins, until the top is golden but the middle is soft.

    Top tip for making Bread and butter pudding

    Can't find - or don't fancy - raisin bread? Normal bread will work just as well.
