Raisin pudding with and without sugar: wonderful recipes

Raisin pudding is a truly wonderful, very popular traditional sweet straight from England. The pudding is one of those traditional desserts that never, absolutely never, gets old. It is a British sweet that was born in order to take advantage of bread that was hard and that was certainly difficult to eat. To do this, he began to mix with eggs, butter, milk, fresh and dried fruits. And what does it consist of? Basically the bread pudding is a sweet wonderful, I dare to add – that is traditionally made with bread which is undone or crumbled and soaked in milk, egg and is accompanied by sugar and dried fruits.

The plum pudding is one of the most classic and popular choices, but there are other equally appetizing suggestions. An example is the well-known plum pudding, which is characterized as a common sweet at Christmas. This time we explain how to make a traditional raisin pudding and another sugar-free alternative, so you can enjoy it whenever you want.

Traditional Raisin Pudding Recipe

Ingredients

  • 250 g of stale bread
  • 3 eggs
  • 500 ml of milk
  • 100g sugar
  • 100 g of raisins
  • 50 g dried apricots (optional)
  • 1 cinnamon stick
  • The skin of 1 orange
  • The skin of 1 lemon
  • Liquid candy
  • 1 l of water

How to make traditional raisin pudding:

  1. Put 1 liter of water on the fire (which will later be used to cook our raisin pudding in a bain-marie in the oven). And we leave heating the fire until it boils. When it reaches this point we pour the water over a baking dish which must be larger than the mold, to be able to place the mold inside. It will be enough if the water reaches the middle of the mold.
  2. Meanwhile, we put the oven to preheat to 200 ºC.
  3. On the bottom of a mold we add a little liquid caramel and reserve.
  4. On our kitchen board we cut the bread into small pieces, and put them in a large bowl.
  5. We put the milk in a saucepan on the fire. Add the cinnamon stick and the orange and lemon peels. When it starts to boil, add the sugar and stir well. Then, with the help of a strainer, we strain the milk. We add the milk to the bread bowl, and stir well so that the bread is soaked.
  6. Beat the eggs and add them to the bread, stirring well until just combined. Now add the raisins and the chopped dried apricots. We mix well again.
  7. We pour the mixture into our mold, and distribute well. Then, taking care not to burn ourselves, we put the pudding mold in the baking dish where we have added the water and put it in the oven. Bake at 200 ºC for 30 to 35 minutes, with heat up and down. The raisin pudding is ready when a toothpick or knife is inserted into it and it comes out clean. If so, remove from the oven and let cool.

Sugar Free Raisin Pudding Recipe

We now propose an ideal recipe for those who want to enjoy a portion of sugar-free raisin pudding. In this case, the sweetness to the dessert will be provided by the raisins and dried apricots that we will add to our recipe.

Ingredients

  • 250 g of stale bread
  • 3 eggs
  • 500 ml of milk
  • 100 g of raisins
  • 50 g dried apricots (optional)
  • 1 cinnamon stick
  • The skin of 1 orange
  • The skin of 1 lemon
  • 1 l of water

How to Make Sugar Free Raisin Pudding:

  1. The steps to follow to make the sugar-free raisin pudding are almost identical to the previous recipe, the only thing that we will skip the liquid caramel and sugar steps. To do this, put 1 liter of water on the fire. Leave heating on the fire until it boils. Then pour some of the water over a baking dish (remember that it must be larger than the mold).
  2. Preheat the oven to 200ºC.
  3. Cut the bread into small pieces and place them in a large bowl.
  4. Put the milk in a saucepan on the fire. Add the cinnamon stick and the orange and lemon peels. When it starts to boil we turn off the heat, and let it rest for 10 more minutes. With the help of a strainer, we strain the milk. We now incorporate the milk into the bowl where we have reserved the bread, and stir well so that it is soaked.
  5. Beat the eggs and add them to the bread, stirring well until just combined.
  6. Now add the raisins and the dried apricots after having chopped them. We mix well again.
  7. We pour the mixture into our mold, and distribute well. Then, taking care not to burn ourselves, we put the pudding mold in the baking dish where we have added the water and put it in the oven. Bake at 200 ºC for 30 to 35 minutes, with heat up and down.

As we mentioned earlier, the sugar-free raisin pudding will be perfectly ready when inserting a toothpick or knife into it comes out clean. If so, remove from the oven and let cool.
