Bread pudding

This is one of those iconic recipes, that every family in Gibraltar has and each one has a special twist to make it special. Some persons add a packet of flan powder, some add fruit, whichever you use, I’m sure it’s a little something passed down generation to generation- the way grandmother made it.

This is my grandmother’s recipe, and – in my opinion- the best one there is. Yes I am biased!  It’s the traditional bread pudding recipe I’ve been fed all my life, and every morsel brings back memories of a simpler time surrounded by family and endless days spent lazying on the beach.

Give this a try it’s great with day old bread, but particularly perfect with day old challah bread – recipe on this website too.



250g crustless day old bread
820g semi skimmed milk
6 eggs
100g granulated sugar
100g melted butter
Pinch of nutmeg
Pinch of cinnamon
Granulated sugar and cinnamon for topping


Pre heat oven to 150c
Heat the milk, sugar and butter until the latter has dissolved.
Add the eggs, spices and mix to incorporate
Break the bread into pieces and stir into the wet ingredients. Let it soak for 10 minutes then, with an immersion blend, blend until smooth.
Place into a deep pre greased dish. Sprinkle the sugar cinnamon mix on top and bake for 1hr to 1hr 10 minutes.
If it’s browning too much, cover with a foil lid after the 45 minute mark. Once time is up insert a skewer in the centre and if it comes up clean it’s cooked through. The pudding should feel firm when tapped on top.
Allow to cool slightly and set in fridge overnight.
Cut and serve. Traditional bread pudding CosyKitchenCorner style.
