Monmouth Pudding Recipe

  • 400ml (14fl oz) milk 
  • 50ml (2fl oz) cream 
  • 125g (4½oz) caster sugar, plus 1 tbsp 
  • 100g (3½oz) fresh white breadcrumbs 
  • 25g (1oz) salted butter, cubed 
  • 3 large eggs, separated 
  • grated zest of 1 lemon 
  • 175g (6oz) tart, soft-set berry jam
  • 150g (5½oz) frozen berries (raspberries, blackberries and blackcurrants are all good) 

Heat the milk, cream and 50g (1¾oz) of the sugar then pour over the breadcrumbs and butter. Leave to sit for 30 minutes. Add the beaten egg yolks and lemon zest and mix well. 

Pour this into a 1 litre (1¾ pint) pudding dish and put into an oven preheated to 150°C/300°F/gas mark 2. Bake for 30 minutes. Take the pudding out of the oven and turn it up to 180°C/350°F/gas mark 4. 

Spoon the jam on top of the breadcrumb mixture (be careful not to puncture it) then scatter on the berries. 

Beat the egg whites till stiff then add the remaining sugar (holding back the extra spoonful) and whisk again until stiff. Spread over the top, sprinkle on the extra sugar and put the pudding back in the oven to bake for 10 minutes. It should be a lovely golden colour. 

Leave it to cool a little then serve with cold ice cream. A delicious summer time pudding, or serve with creamy custard for a winter treat.
