Eggless Bread and Butter Pudding is a rich, creamy and easy warm pudding recipe. This is completely eggless and a vegan option to the Classic English Bread and Butter Pudding.
Do you like warm puddings? I absolutely love no fuss warm bread and butter puddings – it’s cheap yet so yummy. Last time when I shared the Fruity Bread and Butter Pudding some of you requested for a vegan pudding recipe. So I thought why not make a vegan easy eggless bread and butter pudding? When you want to do something you can figure out everything. I personally like baking with eggs – but then some days I want to make vegan alternative recipes for my vegan friends. This eggless bread and butter pudding recipe replaces the egg custard with the store bought custard powder – so this is even more simple and easy.
How to prepare Custard for Eggless Bread and Butter Pudding?
I used Brown & Polson Custard powder in vanilla flavor. These days you get custards in so many flavors you can use any flavor and may be add the same fruit too in this Eggless Bread and Butter Pudding – it will enhance the flavor and texture.
Take 2 cups of milk, custard powder, sugar and butter and wish everything together. Heat in medium flame till it thickens a little. Okay, let me tell you a trick – when using powdered custard for any recipe mix it in a little quantity of milk in a bowl and then add that to the rest of the milk. Else you can end up with either lumpy custard or a layer of custard stuck to the saucepan and milk on top. This is a tried and tested method.
What about the Bread in your Eggless Bread and Butter Pudding?
The staler the bread the better for any bread and butter pudding. Fresh bread soaks up fast and can melt away leaving a very soggy taste in mouth. I used a few white bread slices which are about 3 day old. You can even keep the sides of the breads – my son is very fond of the sides of the bread! I hated them as a child and used to call them bones of bread. *rolls eyes*
Tear the bread slices roughly. Once your custard is ready soak the bread bits in the custard. Press with a spoon or whisk so that the bread bits are submerged in the custard. Let it sit for 2-3 minutes. Spoon out in greased ramekins.
What else can go in your Eggless Bread and Butter Pudding?
This eggless bread and butter pudding recipe is very versatile – you can use fruits like strawberries, blueberries or use raisins and sultanas. I have used some strawberry fruit preserve to enhance the flavor. Add dollops of fruit preserves and sprinkle with some sugar.
Place them on a baking tray with some water. This water will create enough steam in the oven which will help the puddings to remain moist. If you skip this water the pudding can get very dry.
