Friday Food: Earl Grey Tea Bread and Butter Pudding [or Dos and Don’ts of Earl Grey Tea]

Hi guys, Gemma C-S here with the 2nd in our Friday Food 3 parter of recipes by Simon Rimmer for Onebrand. If you’re not quite sure what I’m talking about, check out my bloggers’ day out of cooking with Simon Rimmer and last week’s Scotch Egg recipe.

So when I went along to aforementioned cooking day, I had the pleasure of meeting a bunch of lovely bloggers, all of whom seemed super-organised and quite refined in their individual ways, and wouldn’t have made the mistake that I did with Earl Grey Tea this morning – namely, making a cup full of the stuff (after ruining the last cup of coffee in the pot by tipping curdled soya milk into it) and then because I was running late/moving at slow speed (see the coffee situation) carrying it into the bedroom with me to blow dry my hair, and as I lifted the cup to my lips with the hairdryer running, blew tea all down my front. When actually, what I should have done is taken the day off altogether, and made this:

EARL GREY TEA BREAD AND BUTTER PUDD WITH TOFFEE SAUCE
Created by Simon Rimmer especially for the One Brand.

1 x One Clever Loaf (white bread)
75g butter

  • For the sauce – simply bring the sugar, butter and cream to boil, then remove

Comfort food anyone? Thank goodness it’s Friday!
Love, Gemma C-S

  1. Oh help, I had to wait until after lunch to even look at this, but even now it’s making me hungry. Definitely going to need to make this one. Possibly tonight!

  2. it was so bad… he made it on the day, people were taking photos, and then we were given spoons to have little delicate ladylike bites. I just wanted to put my face in it.

  3. Oh my goodness – I’m not sure how I feel about the tea, but this looks delicious! Bread & butter and bread pudding are some of my fave desserts. Since I gave up dessert for Lent, I’m going to have to save trying this out for another six weeks : ( xx
