Sophisticated Tea and Crumpet Bread Pudding

I’m kind of a carb-o’-holic.  Who’s with me?  I enjoy my bread in any form, and bread pudding is one of my favorite desserts.  When I had some leftover homemade crumpets, bread pudding immediately came to mind.  I found a recipe on Fisher and Paykel’s site for an Earl Grey bread and butter pudding made with croissants.  After gawking over the recipe, I decided to do my own take on their recipe using crumpets and, of course, cupcake liners.  The result was a simple, mildly sweet bread pudding with a distinct tea flavor.  If you are looking for a rich, over-the-top dessert, this isn’t it.  It’s more sophisticated and proper – just like eating tea and crumpets on fine china.

  • 3/4 cup whole milk
  • 3/4 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 2 teaspoons loose Earl Grey tea
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/3 cup golden syrup + extra to drizzle on top you could also use molasses, corn syrup, or honey
  • 3 large eggs
  • 12 crumpets
  • powdered sugar to sprinkle on top optional
  • clotted cream to put on top optional and not shown in photo


  • Preheat the oven to 350 F.
  • Heat the milk and cream in a small saucepan on medium heat until they just begin to boil.
  • Lower the heat just a little to keep the liquid from boiling, and then add the tea.
  • Let the tea steep in the milk mixture for ten minutes.
  • Remove the milk mixture from the heat and use a sieve to strain out the tea.
  • Whisk the vanilla extract and golden syrup into the hot milk mixture.
  • Whisk the eggs in a medium-sized bowl.
  • Add a little bit of the milk mixture at a time to the eggs, stirring to combine after each addition.
  • Rip the crumpets into small pieces.
  • Dunk crumpet pieces into the milk mixture and then pack the pieces into silicone cupcake liners - one crumpet should fill one liner.
  • Bake for 25 minutes or until the bread pieces no longer appear wet.
  • Serve warm, drizzled with golden syrup, sprinkled with powdered sugar, and optionally topped with clotted cream.
