Roly-Poly bread & butter pudding



  • Preheat oven to 180°C fan forced (200°C normal).
  • Butter the bread on one side and spread with jam. Then remove the crusts, roll up and cut in half crossways.
  • Lightly butter the base of a gratin (or any ovenproof) dish and spread with a little jam. Then place the halved rolls on top, cut side up.
  • To make the custard, bring the cream, milk and vanilla to the boil.
  • Beat the eggs and caster sugar in a large bowl until pale and thick. Then add the cream mixture, little by little, continually whisking.
  • Put a couple of sheets of folded newspaper in the base of a large baking dish and pour in boiling water to half way. Carefully place the gratin dish on top and pour the custard over the top, through a fine sieve. Then cook in the oven for about 30-40 mins until risen and golden, yet still wobbly in the centre.
  • Sprinkle with icing sugar, before slicing and serving.
