Did you know bread and butter pudding is a classic English dessert also known as ‘poor man’s pudding’ because it was a way of using up stale bread instead of letting it go to waste? The vanilla flavours, fruity surprises and moist texture make for a delish dessert.


High fibre white bread

288 g, (12x 35g slices), crusts removed

Reduced fat oil spread

20 g

Orange marmalade

¼ cup(s), (85g)


¼ cup(s), (40g)

Dried dates

¼ cup(s), (35g) chopped pitted

Skim milk

Egg white

3 medium

Caster sugar

2 tbs

Vanilla bean paste

1 tsp

Oil spray

1 x 3 second spray(s)

  1. Preheat oven to 150˚C or 130˚C fan-forced. Lightly spray a 2 litre (8-cup capacity) ovenproof dish with oil.
  2. Spread 1 side of each bread slice with spread, then marmalade. Using a serrated knife, remove and discard crust. Cut each slice into 4 triangles. Arrange bread, butter-side up, in prepared dish. Sprinkle with sultanas and dates.
  3. Whisk milk, eggs, egg whites, sugar and vanilla in a large bowl until combined. Strain egg mixture over bread slices. Set aside for 10 minutes to soak in.
  4. Bake for 40 minutes or until top is golden and pudding is just set. Set aside for 10 minutes. Serve dusted with icing sugar.
