Makes: 1 bread pudding

  • 250g bread
  • 125g mixed dried fruit
  • 65g vegetable suet
  • 65g brown sugar
  • 2 level teaspoons mixed spice
  • zest of 1/2 orange
  • 1 medium egg, well beaten
  • caster sugar, for sprinking
  • milk, as needed

Prep:5min  ›  Cook:1hr  ›  Extra time:1hr cooling  ›  Ready in:2hr5min 

  1. Preheat the oven to 180 C / Gas 4. Grease a baking tin.
  2. Tear the bread including crusts and pour over some boiling water (not too much - just enough to soften the bread). Mix with a fork mashing all the lumps. Add the fruit, suet, sugar, mixed spice and orange zest. Mix well. Add the beaten egg. (If the mixture is a little dry add a small quantity of milk). Pour mixture into a greased baking tin and level with a fork.
  3. Bake in the middle of the oven for about 1 hour. Remove from the oven and allow the pudding to cool in the tin. Sprinkle with caster sugar. Cut into squares to serve.


For the dried fruit for this recipe I used mixed fruit with cranberries and apricots.
Use bread that is just a little stale, which will result in a great texture and highly flavourful bread pudding.
