Course: Dessert, Sweets
Servings: 2 -3
Author: Maria Jose Martin


  • 4 slices Bread
  • 2.5 tbsp Butter
  • 3/4 cup Milk
  • 1 Egg
  • 1/4 cup + 1-2 tbsp Sugar
  • 1/4 tsp Vanilla essence
  • 1/4 tsp Cinnamon powder
  • A handful of Cashew nuts & raisins (chopped)


  • Grease a steaming dish. Remove the crust from bread pieces & apply butter to both sides. Cut in triangular shape or cubes. Spread these pieces in the dish. Sprinkle the chopped nuts & raisins over the bread pieces. Combine milk, sugar, egg, vanilla essence & cinnamon powder. Beat well. Pour this over the bread pieces. Cover the dish with aluminium foil.
  • Fill water to the 1/4th of the steamer/appachembu. Place the pudding dish in the steamer. Cook on high flame for 14 minutes. Switch off the gas and keep the steamer closed for 4 more minutes. Open the steamer and take out the dish and remove the foil. Allow it to cool for sometime. Serve warm or cold.


I used butter bread and Amul butter. I think these two factors enhanced the flavor of the pudding (You can use either salted or unsalted butter, it's a personal choice). Though you can serve it cold, we preferred it warm. If leftover is there, refrigerate and microwave the pudding for 15-25 seconds before serving. There are a variety of recipes for bread pudding, so I don't claim any authenticity for this recipe. It's just the way we like it, hope you also like it :) . The above measurements is good to serve 3 persons.

    really liked the recipes you have posted.Just a question – can I either bake the pudding or do it in the pressure cooker ? Any idea ?

  6. I love amul butter every time i am back in India i am rejoicing the taste from amul, maybe it has qqomething to do with the flavour.
    I love the bread pudding too. It is such a comfort dish.
