A close up of bread and butter pudding dessert.

Bread and Butter Pudding

You won’t regret making this classic British dessert. It might be simple, but the cinnamon and raisins give it so much flavor.
Prep Time:10 mins
Cook Time:40 mins
Total Time:50 mins
Servings:8 bowls


  • 5 slices toast bread or regular bread
  • ½ cup granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • ½ cup raisins
  • 2 cups milk
  • 2 eggs
  • salted butter


  • Preheat the oven to 374°F. Grease a baking dish.
  • Butter every slice of bread from all sides, cut in half. Mix sugar and cinnamon in a bowl.
  • Layer bread slices in the baking dish, top with raisins, and add sugar mix, covering each slice.
  • Pour milk on top and let stand for 10 minutes.
  • Bake for 35-40 minutes until the pudding is brown. Serve warm and enjoy!


  • You can use salted or unsalted butter, as it doesn’t really make a difference.
  • Serve this dessert with whipped cream or ice cream on top. I love double vanilla bourbon ice cream on mine.
  • It’s important that you give the milk time to soak into the bread. This is the key to a great outcome.
  • Add a splash of liqueur to the dessert if you like. Anything from rum to Cointreau, brandy, or bourbon would work nicely.
  • Reheat any leftovers in a covered dish in the oven at 325°F. If it seems dry, you can prepare a sauce to serve with it. What about cream, caramel sauce, or strawberry preserves? A scoop of ice cream will also add moisture to the dish so take your pick.
