Butter Custard Bread Pudding is the ultimate pudding dish that will make good use of your leftover bread. This is a classic creamy pudding dish rich in custard and milk. The buttery golden yellow surface garnished with cornflakes is a surprise treat for your eyes. While serving you can also serve a dollop of ice cream on top of the pudding. That’s why I termed this as the ‘ultimate’ pudding dessert. I had a cynical thought with me whenever bread pudding was mentioned to me – ‘stale pieces of bread’.

Butter Custard Bread Pudding is perhaps the most easiest and simple pudding dish you can prepare at home. It requires very few ingredients, that is the beauty of the dish. This rustic home styled pudding has now even made appearance in the menus of top class restaurants. And these top rated restaurants, in order to grant that extra buttery edge, has opted for special buttery breads like ‘brioche’ and ‘challah’. In this recipe, I have used normally available economical white breads. A tip from my end – it is always better to use breads that are not pre-sliced. You can tear the breads into chunks or pieces that will provide a more custardy texture. This is a healthy dessert, rich in protein and other nutrients required for your body.
