Leek and Stilton Bread and Butter Pudding

Leek and Stilton Bread and Butter Pudding

Bread and Butter pudding is one of Britain's most traditional and loved desserts, and I couldn't resist putting a savoury spin on this classic using my favourite cheese, Stilton.

The original recipe came from a past edition of BBC Good Food magazine. Let me warn you though it is very filling but also very easy to adapt with other ingredients. 

8 slices Granary Bread
TBSP Dijon Mustard
2 Leeks
200g Stilton
200g Cheddar
3 eggs
500ml Milk
Seasoning and Parsley to serve

Step 1: Fry leeks in a little oil until soft.
Step 2: Butter and mustard one side of each slice of bread and cut each slice into quarters
Step 3: Mix together the eggs. milk, salt and pepper to make an egg custard.
Step 4: Lay third of bread on the bottom of an ovenproof dish (butter side up), top with a third of leeks and third of cheeses. Pour over a third of egg custard mixture.
Step 5: Repeat the process until all ingredients have been used up. Leave to soak for 20 minutes
Step 6: Preheat oven to 190 and bake for 30-40 minutes.


  1. Wow, that looks great and I agree that it is a perfect rainy day dish! It is still raining here *sigh*

  2. You had me at "Pudding."
    I need to try Stilton...I don't think I've had it before.
    I like strong cheeses.

  3. Beth that looks simply yummy and perfect like you say for rainy days like the ones we keep having!


  4. I just love savory bread puddings and yours looks divine. I have to run next store and ask my British neighbor what Granary bread is though!

  5. That looks so comforting. Bet it tasted wonderful. I find dishes with blue cheese very rich too, so can imagine a small slice would have gone a long way!

  6. I literally oohed and aahed when I saw your picture. That looks phenomenal. Writing it down and won't be able to think of anything else till I make it.

  7. Oh, that is immediately going into my bookmarks to make next week. I hope I get leeks from the farm. I have a question though, I'm not sure I can get granary bread here, any ideas for a substitution? Would whole wheat work?

  8. I must make this! It will have to be in miniature form as Phil will not touch Stilton with a ten foot pole. (I always knew that there was something wrong with him)Now for me to work on scaling down the ingredients to make a tiny bread pudding.

  9. What a comforting dish for a rainy day! I bet the stilton is great in this pudding! YUM!

  10. I have never seen a savory recipe for bread pudding. I have to admit I very intrigued. I am adding this to my "try soon" list!

  11. Beth what's really nice pudding!! look so yummy Gloria

  12. Kat - Whole wheat would be fine, or white for that matter!

  13. Thanks Beth. I can't wait to try it

  14. A fabulous variation on an old favourite. I really need to try this.

  15. I can't stop thinking about this stuff. I came back just to gawk....

  16. Wowee does that ever look goooood!
    I am so very tempted, need to get leeks!

  17. Ooh, that's a new one on me - savoury B&B pudding. I love it! Looks like ultimate comfort food

  18. What a tasty creation you have here Beth and just perfect for the weather we've been having lately!

  19. Beth - we made this last night & it was great. I blogged about it today & linked back to you.

  20. Mmm... leeks and stilton, two of my favourite things. It looks gorgeous, Beth!

  21. This looks wonderful- I love Stilton too- and I believe I just may try it yet today! ;-)

No Bake Zingy Lime Crumb Pie

This No-Bake Zingy Lime Crumb Pie is going to be my go to dessert this summer. A zingy lime cream encased in a sweet biscuit crumb - much like a no bake cheesecake...but better! It's seriously yummy and will happily sit in the fridge for a couple of days so there's no need to scoff it all at once if you don't want to 😜. It's quite rich too so the recipe made in a 20cm springform tin will easily feed 8 - 10 people, the perfect size for a family gathering or summer BBQ.

TOP TIPS FOR MAKING NO-BAKE ZINGY LIME CRUMB PIETry using ginger nut biscuits instead of digestives for a more grown up taste.For a 'fancier' dessert, pipe some whipped double cream around the edge of the pie and decorate with slices of lime.I whip the condensed milk, lime juice and double cream with a hand held electric whisk but you can do it by hand if you want to - it will give you a good arm workout!You can make the Zingy Lime Crumb Pie up to 3 days before you need it so it's a great ma…

Honey and Peanut Butter Flapjacks

These flapjacks are now my official weekday grab and go breakfast. I make a big batch on Sunday evening and I'm all set for the week. Oddly I don't really like peanut butter but it works well in this recipe. You can always substitute it for an extra 100g of ordinary butter if you wanted. A handful of raisins makes a nice addition too.
