Christmas Cake Bread Pudding!

Now this is a bit complex recipe. Reason you will be substituting cake with bread so you need to bake this cake first. Don’t worry it’s a simple cake recipe and you will bake it within an hour.

For the Walnut Coffee Cake!

  • All purpose flour: 2 cups
  • Castor sugar: 2 cups
  • Salt: a pinch
  • Eggs: 4 large
  • Baking powder: 2 tbsp
  • Baking soda: 1 tbsp
  • Vanilla: 2 tbsp
  • Walnuts: 1 cup chopped
  • Coffee: 2 tbsp
  • Hot water: 1/2 cup
  • Chocolate chips: 1/2 cup

You will need an electric hand beater or a stand mixer for this. I used my kitchen aid stand mixer. Beat the eggs on high speed. Till it doubles, takes about five minutes. Then add sugar and beat for another 4 minutes. Till it becomes double in size and looks a glossy White mix. Put the coffee in the hot water and mix. Use instant coffee powder. Let it come to room temperature.

Sift your dry ingredients. Fold in the egg mix and coffee water into the dry mix and use a spatula. Do this gently and never overmix. Pour the mixture in a 9 inch springform pan that’s oiled and dusted with flour. Use half the batter. The sprinkle with half walnuts. Then pour half the batter and sprinkle half walnuts and Chocolate chips on top. Bake in a preheated oven at 180 degrees for 30 minutes. Remove after 3 mins. Let it cool down.


Cut your cake by cutting in large triangles. Then cut down the triangles into rectangles. Okay don’t be confused. Just cut the way you want to. Put the pieces into a deep dish. Prepare your custard now.

  • Milk toned: 1 cup
  • Cream: 1 cup
  • Icing sugar: 1 cup
  • Cinnamon: 1 tbsp
  • Butter: 1/4 cup
  • Raisins: 1/2 cup
  • Egg: 1
  • Honey: 4 tbsp

Whisk the egg and sugar together. Put milk and cream in a non stick pan and let it come to simmer. Just above blood temperature but do not let it come to a boil. Pour the milk and cream mix over the egg and sugar and whisk well till combined. Add in Cinnamon and whisk. Pour the mix over the cake and add in Raisins. Let it sit for half an hour so the cake gets completely soaked into it. Don’t skip this step. Melt the butter and pour it over the cake. Bake in a preheated oven at 180 degrees for 30 minutes. Take it out and pour honey over it. Decorate it with a spoon of fresh cream and Pomegranates. Serve it hot with tea.
