Bread & butter pudding – a very popular British dish that has made its way to New Zealand as a scrummy dessert. Simple, fast and tasty – this recipe is a winner! The ultimate comfort food made with our Spicy Fruit Loaf and a drizzle of warm custard.


Or try Coupland’s Our Country Harvest Loaf, to make a perfect fruitless bread and butter pudding alternative!


Serves 6


  • 1 Coupland’s Spicy Fruit Loaf
  • 300ml Milk
  • 300ml Cream

  • 1tsp vanilla essence

  2. Grease a cake or bread tin for your pudding, and lightly dust the edges with a little sugar.

  5. Pour the hot cream mix over the egg and sugar mix, slowly whisking until mixed well.
  6. Slice the fruit loaf into strips.
  7. Start building your pudding by lining the base and sides of your tin with sliced fruit loaf to create a shell.

  • If you have kids who are not to fond of bread crusts, feel free to cut them off.

Ice Cream Sandwiches

The only thing that makes warm heated Super Choc Chip Cookies better in our opinion, is a scoop of ice cream sandwiched between two!


How to make Ice Cream Sandwiches



  • 2 Cookies – we used Super Choc Chip
  • 1 small Scoop of Ice Cream – we used Strawberry



  1. Take the Ice Cream out of the freezer.
  2. Place the Cookies on a dish and put in the microwave for 10 seconds to heat slightly.
  3. Take Cookies out of the microwave.
  4. Scoop one small scoop of Ice Cream and put it on top of one heated Cookie.
  5. Place the other Cookie on top of that and eat! Delicious!



  • Don’t limit yourself to just cookies either, think outside the box and try alternatives like Chocolate Brownie, Donuts or Lolly Slice.
  • If you don’t feel like eating the Ice Cream Sandwich immediately (but who won’t), feel free put in a small container or wrap with Glad Wrap and put in the freezer for later.
  • Want something extra sweet? Drizzle some Ice Cream topping (e.g. Caramel Sauce or Choc Wizz) on the scoop of Ice Cream before putting the top Cookie on
  • Or, want to make it fun for the kids? Get the sprinkles out and roll the small scoop of Ice Cream in that before sandwiching between the two Cookies.
