3-Minute Boozy Bread Pudding

Anyone else suddenly get the occasional mid-week 9pm ‘screw the diet – treat yo’self’ feeling? That need for a sweet treat in order to pull yourself out of a hump-day slump? No? …just me then! 

When I get these moments of weakness I need to make something tasty quickly – and it is imperative that it’s ready before I come to my senses and reach for the carrot sticks… that’s where these three minute microwave puddings (I love you so much I gave you three options) come in. Before the kettle has even had a chance to boil – this little pot of decadence is ready for eating… 

All recipes serve 1 – I’d suggest you try making a couple and sharing them. Best served with a mug of tea or a milky coffee. 

:: Amaretto and White Chocolate Bread Pudding

1 piece of soft white bread or brioche, generously buttered (I actually used my leftover fruit buns from Easter)

1 egg

2 tbsp Amaretto

1 tbsp milk

Small handful of white chocolate chips

  • Mix together your booze, milk and egg in a microwave proof mug or glass. 
  • Cut up your buttered bread – into roughly 1″ pieces.
  • Add the bread into your boozy custard mixture and stir so that it is evenly coated.
  • Sprinkle in your white chocolate chips and put everything into microwave on high for 1 1/2 minutes. (Microwave times may vary so just keep an eye on it.)
  • Add some ice cream, cream, clotted cream or custard and dig in!

:: Mocha Bread Pudding

1 piece of soft white bread or brioche, generously buttered

1 egg

1 tbsp Kahlua

1 tbsp Baileys

1 tbsp milk

4 squares of good quality dark chocolate roughly cut into chunks

  • Mix together your booze, milk and egg in a microwave proof mug or glass. 
  • Break up your buttered bread – roughly tear it into pieces. 
  • Add the bread into your boozy custard mixture and stir so that it is evenly coated.
  • Sprinkle in your chocolate chunks and put everything into microwave on high for 1 1/2 minutes.
  • Add some ice cream, cream or custard and dig in!

:: Maple Whisky Bread Pudding 

1 piece of soft white bread or brioche, generously buttered

1 egg

2 tbsp milk

1 tsp maple syrup

1 tbsp good quality whisky (I like something smokey to balance out the sweetness

Pinch of ground cinnamon

1/2 tsp vanilla extract

1 tbsp raisins

  • Mix wet ingredients in a microwave proof mug (or glass), add cinnamon and whisk to combine. 
  • Cut up your buttered bread into 1″ pieces
  • Add the bread into your boozy custard mixture and stir so that it is evenly coated.
  • Sprinkle in your raisins and put everything into microwave on high for 1 1/2 minutes (check during cooking as microwave times vary)
  • Add some ice cream, cream or clotted cream and dig in! 

*Eating it in bed, while you watch tv through the open door of your bedroom into the lounge because your apartment is tiny, is optional… 🙂



Please let me know if you give these a go and tell me how you get on!

PS. Zero judgement from me if you decide to go for one of these on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday etc… a girl’s got to do what a girl’s gotta do in order to get through the week 🙂
