bread pudding................

There is bread pudding, and there is bread and butter pudding.
All the rcipes here are a variation of the bread and butter pudding.
Real bread pudding, another name Wet Nellie, :-)) UK recipe, is more like a heavy fruit cake with spice and dried fruit in it.
With these recipes the the finished product is more like egg custard with bread in it. qahtan

Hi gahtan,

Welcome to Discuss Cooking. That is probably one of those differences between "here and there"! LOL I've never even heard the term bread and butter pudding :oops: and any bread pudding, rice pudding, etc. is a custard-like dish. I've never heard the term "Wet Nellie" either! :oops: But fruitcake, I can honestly say, I probably wouldn't even like the very best one ever made - I'm not sure what it is about it but it makes the hair stand up on my arms!! LOL

Hope you join in other conversations - always interested in the differences between here and "there" (wherever "there" might be).

The way Brits and Ozzies make bread and butter pudding is quite different from what you guys refer to as bread pudding. We spread slices of bread with butter, layer them in a dish, then pour over a mix of eggs, sugar and cream, then sit for 30 minutes before baking.

Lots of variations, such as adding dried fruit, chocolate, adding extra flavourings to the custard etc. Try doing it with slices, it's very yummy! Your bread pudding is what we call Diplomat pudding!

Wet Nellie is a little known pudding made out of stale cake, originating from Liverpool. I can't find a recipe at all, but shall make enquiries, I'm intrigued.

On a slight tangent, people from Liverpool are known colloquially as Scousers, which refers to the eaters of their traditional dish Scouse, a type of stew

Kyles and qahtan;
I too am intrigued by the "Wet Nellie". Unlike KitchenElf, I am a huge fan of fruitcake if it is well-made. So anything remotely resembling one is something I would love to try.
Kyles isn't Scouse also what they call the slang of Liverpool?

Well done our kid, it is indeed (they call people our kid a lot!) Manchester where I live is only half an hour from Liverpool.

Ultimate Bread Pudding

I am new to this forum, but having cooked for 57 years, I have a little experience.
ULTIMATE BREAD PUDDING
4-6 slices bread, wheat, white, sour, cinnamon raisen-You choose
Tear into pieces & place in buttered casserole 2 qt
Sprinkle with 1/3 c raisens
In bowl beat: 3 eggs, 2/3 c sugar , 1 tsp cinnamon, 1/2 tsp fresh, grated nutmeg, dash salt, 1 tsp vanilla
Gently stir in: 2 1/2 c hot milk, 3 Trsp butter, melted
Pour over bread & raisens. Let set 20 min before baking.
Bake 350* 65-75 min until knife inserted comes out clean.

That is the base recipe. You can use whole milk, skim or half & half. You can do white or brown sugar to change taste. For fruit you may do chopped apples, apricots, candied chopped ginger, currants or berries. Use your imagination.
You can add 1/2 c shopped nuts.

Now for the topping. I use Lemon Sauce, Carmel Sauce or a Bourbon Sauce.
Lemon Sauce
Combine all ingredients in medium saucepan, mixing very well. Heat to boiling over med heat, stirring constantly with wire whip. Best served warm.
1 c sugar, 1/2 c butter, 1/4 c water, 3 Tbsp lemon juice, 3/4 tsp grated lemon peel, 1 egg, well beaten.

I take this to potlucks all the time. It is a great hit.
