A Lower Fat and Sugar Roly Poly Bread and Butter Pudding



I've been experimenting here and there, trying to come up with lower fat and sugar versions of some of our favourite treats, thinking that Todd could benefit from them as well, even though he doesn't have to watch his sugar intake, he does have to watch his cholesterol.

Roly Poly Bread and Butter Pudding is a love of his.   He loves bread and butter pudding to begin with and he adores jam on or in anything.

I thought I would make his favourite dessert in a lower fat, lower sugar version to see how it turned out.

It turned out really nice. It's composed of lovely little buttery roly poly bread and raspberry jam sandwiches laid on a bed of more raspberry jam, covered in a sweet vanilla custard, and then baked  until it all souffles up in a rich cloud of baked custardy goodness . . . soft and creamy inside, with lovely buttery sweet crunchy bits on the outside.

Just one problem . . .  when I did the analysis of the calories etc. it was still fairly high in sugar.   I guess diabetic jam isn't much better for you than regular jam.  One shudders at the amount of sugar which must be in a regular version of this.

It was a valient attempt however, and I did enjoy a small spoonful of it.  I think actual mashed fruit might be better . . .  I'll have to try it again using that and see.

You really couldn't tell much difference between it and the regular one taste wise.  So, in that way I would call it a success.

*Roly Poly Bread and Butter Pudding* The lower fat, low sugar versionServes 8Printable Recipe

Little bread butter and jam rolls baked in a delicious vanilla custard until light fluffy and scrummy yummy!  You will want to use very fresh bread for this.  Dry bread will not roll properly.

85g  softened low fat butter spread, plus extra to butter the baking dish (about 1/3 cup)
340g of low sugar raspberry jam (1 1/2 cups)
1 large fresh unsliced loaf of white bread
4 large free range eggs
415 ml of  skimmed milk (1 3/4 cup)
415ml  low fat evaporated milk (1 3/4 cup)12g splenda sugar substitute (1/2 cup)
1 tsp of vanilla paste, or the seeds scraped from one vanilla podCaster sugar to sprinkle on top if desired (about 1 tsp)
Butter a deep two litre baking dish lightly.  Stir the jam well with a fork and then spoon half of it into the prepared baking dish.

Trim the crusts and rounded top off of the loaf of bread so that you have a large rectangular block of bread. Carefully cut the bread into 4 long slices lengthwise. (This is the hardest part as fresh bread is a bit squidgy, but persevere and go slowly.  It will be worth it.)  You can whiz all the edges and leftovers into bread crumbs and store  in the freezer for something else.

Spread each of the four long slices of bread on one side with low fat butter spread.  Flip them over and spread the jam on the other sides.  (Yes  it will make the counter a bi...
