Banana and Baileys Bread and Butter Pudding

I am giving you a recipe this week that I actually made ages ago but never seemed to write it down and I do not know why! I have never tried making bread and butter pudding, or to be honest ever even tried it, but seriously what is there not to like, it basically has all my favourite things in it bananas, Baileys, walnuts and chocolate. I was inspired by a recipe whilst watching a Jamie Oliver show and here is my version of Banana and Baileys Bread and Butter Pudding;


  • 100 g of Butter
  • 10 Slices of White Bread
  • 100g of Caster Sugar
  • 1tbsp of Caster Sugar
  • Seeds from 1 Vanilla Pod
  • 4 Eggs
  • 600ml of Double Cream
  • 600ml of Semi-skimmed Milk
  • 4 Banana
  • 75g of Walnuts
  • 100ml of Baileys
  • 100g of Milk Chocolate Chocolate

  1. Preheat the oven to 180°C
  2. Lightly butter the all of the slices of bread on one side
  3. Then cut each slice in half (so you have 20 rectangles)
  4. In a bowl whisk the sugar, vanilla seeds and eggs together until well combined
  5. Then add the cream and milk whilst continually whisking until smooth and set aside
  6. Now peel and slice your bananas and crush up the chocolate and walnuts and set to one side
  7. Grease an oven dish with butter
  8. Then place a layer of bread in the bottom of the dish, sprinkle a little of the banana slices, walnuts and chocolate and then another layer of bread
  9. Repeat until you have used all of the ingredients
  10. Drizzle over the Baileys and custard making sure you moisten all the bread
  11. Leave to stand for around 20 minutes until the bread begins to soak up the liquid
  12. Bake in the preheated oven for 35 minutes until the pudding starts to set around the edges whilst wobbly in the middle
  13. Remove from the oven and allow to cool slightly
  14. Then sprinkle the caster sugar over the top and serve with cream (or ice cream)

As a first attempt at both making and eating a bread and butter pudding of any sort, I have to say that my Banana and Baileys Bread and Butter Pudding was really delicious. It certainly was not gourmet food but more of a family Sunday lunch dessert that can be enjoyed by everyone, home comfort food I would call it, it comforted me and my stomach.  I would love to try and make it again using a different filling, I think this is a great recipe that can be used for most occasions when you need a dessert to serve at least 8 that you can prepare in advance.

  1. This sounds very comforting and I like how the ingredients are very accessible. I don’t really have sweet comfort foods as I’m a savoury tooth. I love reading about other people’s comfort foods. I think it usually as to do with memory and personal experiences.

    My comfort foods include foods that my Chinese mama made us when we were kids. Like fried rice or noodle soup.

    1. I agree, when I go back to my home town there is nothing more comforting than my favourite Chinese restaurant!
