Banana, Baileys and White Chocolate Bread and Butter Pudding

- Advertisement -
Yield: 6


  • 1 1/2 cups milk
  • 300 ml cream
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 4 egg yolks
  • 10 slices toast sliced white bread
  • 1/3 cup Baileys Irish Creme Liqueuer
  • 125g white chocolate, roughly chopped
  • I large ripe but firm banana, sliiced


Preheat the oven to 180 C

To make the custard, heat the milk, cream and sugar in a small saucepan until just about boiling, stirring to ensure the sugar is dissolved. Allow to cool until warm and then pour a little of the warm liquid into the egg yolks, whisking as you do so. Add the mixture back to the pan and whisk to combine, along with the Baileys as well.

Cut the slices of bread into quarter triangles, removing crusts only if you want to.

Grease a  a 30 cm rectangular baking dish (approximately 6 cm deep) with butter and then line the base with half of the bread slices. Slice over the banana and scatter with the white chocolate.
Pour the custard mixture evenly over the bread slices.
Top with remaining bread, pressing down gently to help the bread absorb the liquid.
Allow to sit for at least 15 mintues before cooking.
Preheat the oven to 180 C.
Bake for 30 minutes until the slices are golden and the pudding feels almost firm to the touch.

  1. I couldn’t wait to try this one! However, I found it overly sweet and next time (because there will be one!), will cut out the white chocolate and some of the sugar – the banana and Baileys adds even more sweetness. I also sprinkled thread coconut over the top and this added to the Baileys flavour and gave a nice crunchiness to the top.

  2. Heaven – all of my favourites in one. Brilliant cheerer upper on these chilly winter evenings. This one is for the save file!!!
