Beetroot & Apple Bread & Butter Pudding 

Here’s a healthy twist on your regular Bread and butter pudding – it’s also a great way to get your little ones to eat beetroot (we know how difficult that can be !)

Bread & butter is a traditional , comforting pudding and this one uses less sugar and more fruit. 

Ingredients

8 slices of bread , lightly buttered ( crusts on or off , we like them on ) 

6 slices of bread cut into triangles , lightly buttered and with a thin layer of any jam ( strawberry , apricot , raspberry …)

6 small pre-cooked beetroots grated 

2 small apples grated 

2 cups of milk 

1 full egg + 1 egg yolk 

3 tbsps of sugar 

1 tsp Vanilla extract 

2 tbsps Creme fraiche ( optional) 

Method 

Preheat oven to 180 degrees Celsius 

Lightly grease an oven proof dish 

Place the 8 slices of bread in the dish, covering the base

Evenly sprinkle over the grated beetroot & apple

In a seperate bowl make the custard by whipping the milk , eggs , sugar , Creme fraiche & vanilla until combined 

Pout the custard over the bread and leave for 10 minutes to allow the bread to soak up the custard 

Use the back of a fork to press down on the soaking bread

Place the triangular slices of bread over the top. You may need to cut the slices to fit or just push down around the corners of the dish 

Bake for 30-40 minutes.
