Bread butter pudding recipe with step by step photos – a baked pudding recipe made with whole wheat bread, butter and eggless custard sauce. i have also shared steamed no-bake Recipe of eggless caramel bread pudding.

The eggless custard is easy to make and this recipe can be used as a custard base for any recipe that involves custard. No custard powder is added to prepare the custard. The thickening agent added is corn starch or as we Indians call it – corn flour.

The recipe method has been loosely adapted from About.com. the original recipe uses eggs, but since I know how to make an eggless custard sauce, I have used my own recipe to make the custard sauce.

I made the pudding with homemade whole wheat bread. I was experimenting with a different technique for whole wheat bread than the bread recipe that is already posted on the blog. The result was somewhat dense bread.

From half of the loaf, I made Bombay veg sandwiches and the remaining half I made the eggless pudding. I usually make this pudding with either homemade whole wheat bread or homemade brown bread as obviously they are more nutritious than white bread.

Bread butter pudding goes extremely well as a dessert in itself. You can top the pudding with chocolate sauce or caramel sauce, if you prefer. Sometimes I sprinkle brown sugar on top before baking the pudding (pic above). After getting baked there is a lovely aroma from the caramelized brown sugar.

Notes

Depending on the temperature in your oven and the size of your pan, the pudding might take less or more time than mentioned here. The temperature varies from oven to oven. So take your call and keep an eye. The benchmark is that the pudding should set firmly and a tooth pick inserted in the pudding should come out clean. If for some reason, the pudding is not set and still slightly runny, then continue to bake for some more time till it sets firmly.

  1. Hello Dassana jii I just want to know what is an alternative to vanilla extract ?? In many other recipes of yours it has been used. And what is the difference between vanilla extract and essence ? Thanks a lot for your guidance ?

    1. amandeep, an alternative would be to use vanilla beans. just slit a bean into two. scrape the tiny seeds and add them in the batter or the dessert you are preparing. vanilla extract is where the flavors of a vanilla bean are extracted in an alcohol base. vanilla essence has no real vanilla in it, but its artificially made with chemicals and flavoring agents. i prepare vanilla extract at home and have shared the recipe on the blog.

  2. Hii. Your recipes are just too good. I hv a query abt the recipe that can i use custard powder. And i hv a microwave, can i make the pudding in it.

    1. shruti, you can use custard powder. pudding can be baked in the convection mode of microwave but not in the microwave mode.
