Welsh Recipes: Bara Brith bread and butter pudding (pwdin bara brith)

  1. Welsh Recipes: Bara Brith bread and butter pudding (pwdin bara brith)

    Even if it is smothered with butter, that last few slices of week-old bara brith are dry and horrible – but don’t panic bin it! Make it into something amazing. Butter t...he bara brith and place the slices in a heatproof dish, fill the gaps with indulgent egg custard mix and a drop of your favourite liqueur, and oven it for at least half an hour. There you have it – the best comfort pudding in Wales, and you feel thrifty and smug at having successfully created a silk purse from a pig’s ear. Yippee.


    Approx 250g sliced and buttered (preferably unsalted) bara brith

    125ml double cream

    450ml milk

    40g soft brown sugar

    3 eggs

    2 tbs demerara sugar


    Preheat the oven to 170c/150c fan.

    Lightly grease the dish.

    Slice up the leftover bara brith and butter it.

    Lay it in the dish, and then add a couple of cap-fulls of your liqueur. I chose Cointreau and some dark rum. You could use whisky or brandy.

    Put the egg, cream, milk and sugar in a bowl and beat it then pour into the bara brith dish.

    Leave it to soak in for 15 – 30 minutes.

    Sprinkle the demerara sugar on top.

    Put it in the oven for 30 – 40 minutes until set and slightly browned on top.
