To accompany our weekly pudding club we will be posting a Pudding Club recipe every week... So we're kicking off with White Chocolate & Raspberry Bread and Butter Pudding...
You don't need any special cooking skills or anything just nice simple delicious puddings to make at home. Maybe for a dinner party? (We're all in favour of dinner parties, I think we should all start having them.)
If you're not a dab hand in the kitchen don't worry Mrs Mck taught me how to make this the other day and I'm a bit of a pudding novice , but it went down a treat with our guests . I have a feeling it could've been a favourite at Pudding Club last night...
Raspberry and White Chocolate Bread & Butter Pudding
Ingredients: 8 thick slices of day old crusty white bread, slightly salted butter (enough to butter the bread), punnet of raspberries, 150g white chocolate, 200ml double cream, 100ml milk, 200g caster sugar, 150g cream cheese, 2 eggs, 2 egg yolks, tbsp vanilla essence.
First, pre heat oven to 180°. Liberally butter both sides of each slice of bread. Arrange 4 slices of bread on the bottom of a buttered oven dish (cut or tear the bread to fit). Then evenly scatter half the raspberries and chocolate chunks over the bread. Arrange another layer of bread making sure they overlap in places. Scatter some more raspberries and chocolate on top.
In a mixing bowl beat 2 eggs, 2 egg yolks and sugar together till pale, add cream cheese and beat till smooth.
In a small saucepan bring cream, milk and vanilla essence to the boil then add this mixture to the mixing bowl and mix well.
Pour over the bread ensuring it gets into all the spaces and down the sides of the oven dish. Sprinkle a few raspberries and white chocolate over the top to decorate. Put in the middle of the pre-heated oven for about half an hour. It should be lightly golden and solid but not too dry when ready.
