Servings: 8 Prep Time: 40 mins Cooking Time: 50 mins

What you'll need

  • 12 slices of white bread, crusts removed*
  • 4oz soft butter
  • 4oz sultanas or currants or a mix.
  • 4oz caster sugar
  • 4 large eggs
  • 2 pints Delamere Dairy's whole sterilised cows' milk
  • 6 tbsp Irish cream (e.g. Baileys)


*You can switch your bread for brioche, panettone or pain au chocolat for a different taste.


How to make it...

  1. Preheat the oven to 160°c.
  2. Butter the bread generously and cut each slice into 4 small squares.
  3. Butter a suitable heatproof dish and line with half the buttered squares of bread - buttered side up - then sprinkle all the sultanas/currants and half the sugar. Top with the remaining buttered squares.
  4. Beat the eggs, milk & Irish cream well together then strain into dish over the bread. Leave to stand for at least 30 minutes to allow the bread to absorb the milk.
  5. Top evenly with the remaining sugar then bake in centre of oven at 160C for approx 50mins until the pudding is set and the top is crisp.
