INPOST bread-and-butter pudding 1This is a traditional South African pudding, perfect “comfort food” for cold winter nights. It is delicious, simple – and economical!


  • 4 slices light brown bread
  • butter
  • 100 ml marmalade
  • 3 eggs
  • 400 ml milk
  • 5 ml vanilla essence
  • 15 ml brown sugar
  • pinch of salt


1.Preheat the oven to 180°C.
2. Cut the  bread sideways to make 8 triangles. Spread each triangle with butter and a generous layer of apricot jam or marmalade.
3. Butter a round ovenproof dish, and arrange the bread slices in circles, resembling the petals of a “flower”. 

4. Beat together the eggs, milk, vanilla essence, sugar and salt. Pour this mixture over the bread, and let it rest for about 10 minutes.
5. Bake in a bain marie for 30-40 minutes, or until puffed up like a soufflé and lightly golden brown on top.

Delicious served hot with custard or whipped cream!
