Raisin Bread and Butter Pudding

A little while ago I was in hospital and couldn’t breastfeed Harry for a few days. We bought a tin of formula to get through this time, but the problem was, I used very little and was left with an expensive tin of formula with a 1 month use by date. This is the sort of recipe that is perfect for using up leftover formula, breast milk, any milk! Not to mention it is really yummy and will be perfect for Harry’s afternoon tea.

This recipe is easily halved and can be served hot or cold.

Tip: Substitute the apple for your child favourite fruit – banana, peaches, apricots, pears will all work well.

Tip: This is delicious served warm, but also holds its shape well if you want to serve it as finger food the next day.

  • 8 slices of raisin bread
  • 1 tbs butter
  • 1 apple, grated
  • 2 cups prepared formula, or cows milk
  • 2 eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon


Step 1

Preheat the oven to 180°C. Lightly spread one side of each slice of bread with margarine and cut into quarters. -

Step 2

Line half the slices of bread, margarine side facing up, on a prepared ovenproof dish. You want the bread to fit snuggly. Add grated apple (or other fruit) then another layer of the bread, margarine side facing up. -

Step 3

Whisk the milk, eggs, vanilla, and cinnamon in a bowl. Pour over the bread and leave to stand for 5 minutes to absorb. Place in the oven for 30 - 35 minutes or until set. -

    I have a huge panettone in the freezer from Christmas. I thought I might use it to make this bread & butter pudding but hoped to make little ones in muffin tins then freeze as toddler snacks. Do you think this recipe would work and how long would you cook them for? Thanks

      Well I ended up making this in a baking dish as I want sure about cooking time for muffins. But is was delicious! The pannetone gave it a lemony flavour with the rind. I just cut it once cooled into squares and froze it. Both mum and bub love it! Thankyou
