Why have bread and butter pudding when you can have creamy, spiced eggnog pudding? Wouldn’t be Christmas without it!



  • 6 slices of stale bread, buttered on one side and quartered (feel free to use any kind of leftover bread for this, I sure do – and salted butter is best)
  • 3 large free-range or organic eggs
  • 200ml whole milk
  • 250ml heavy cream
  • 75g caster sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground clove (I like a lot so I have a bit more)
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg, and more for the top
  • 1 vanilla bean, scraped (optional but great)
  • 1/23/4 cup brandy or rum (spiced rum would be great here)


  1. Preheat the oven to 180C
  2. Place the buttered triangles of bread in a shallow dish, overlapping slightly.
  3. In a bowl or jug mix together the eggs, milk, cream, sugar, spices and vanilla
  4. Pour the custard mixture over the bread and leave to sit 10 or 15 minutes for the custard to start soaking into the bread
  5. Bake 20-30 minutes until puffed and golden and cooked all the way through.
