🥛 Gordon Ramsay’s Bread And Butter Pudding Ingredients

  • 50g softened butter, plus extra to grease
  • 2–3 tbsp apricot jam
  • 6 pains au chocolat, cut into slices 1cm thick
  • 1–2 tbsp ground cinnamon
  • 4 tbsp demerara sugar
  • 35g golden raisins
  • 500ml whole milk
  • 120ml double cream
  • 6 eggs
  • 2 vanilla pods, seeds scraped out

👩‍🍳 How To Make Gordon Ramsay’s Bread And Butter Pudding

  1. Prepare an oven at 180 degrees Celsius (Gas Mark 4) temperature. Grease a 9-by-13-inch baking dish with butter.
  2. Melt the jam in a pan over low heat, stirring occasionally, for a couple of minutes. Take out and put aside.
  3. Spread butter on one side of the pain au chocolat slices and lay them aside in a large bowl.
  4. Put all the raisins and sugar (approximately 2 tablespoons’ worth) in the buttered serving dish. Sprinkle with 2 teaspoons of cinnamon.
  5. Spread the melted jam on top, saving a small quantity for the final glaze.
  6. Pour half of the mixture that you just made by whisking together the milk, cream, eggs, vanilla seeds, and 1 teaspoon of cinnamon over the bread. Once it has soaked in, place the bread on a serving plate so that the slices overlap.
  7. Spread the remaining egg mixture over the top of the bread layers, then sprinkle the top with the remaining sugar and a pinch of cinnamon if desired.
  8. Bake for 35 to 40 minutes, or until brown.
  9. Serve the pudding immediately after brushing it with the melted jam you set aside.

💭 Recipe Tips

  • Use Fresh Pains au Chocolat: Fresh pastries will provide the best flavor and texture for your pudding.
  • Don’t Skimp on Butter: Ensure the slices are generously buttered for a rich and indulgent taste.
  • Even Custard Distribution: Make sure the custard is evenly soaked into the bread for a consistent texture.
  • Customize the Jam: You can experiment with different fruit jams for a unique twist on the glaze.
  • Watch the Baking Time: Keep a close eye on the oven to avoid overcooking; the pudding should be golden brown and slightly crispy on top.

FAQs

Why is my bread and butter pudding watery?

Your bread and butter pudding can be watery if not baked full-time, as the custard may not set completely, leaving excess moisture.

Why does my bread and butter pudding curdle?

Your bread and butter pudding can curdle if your oven is too hot, causing the custard to overcook and separate, resulting in a curdled texture.

Why does my bread-and-butter pudding collapse?

Your bread and butter pudding can collapse when cooling because the steam inside condenses, causing a reduction in volume and a loss of its initial puffiness.

Why does my bread and butter pudding taste eggy?

Your bread and butter pudding may taste eggy if it’s cooked at too high a temperature for too long, causing the eggs in the custard to dominate the flavor.
