Degustation box - A Monthly Surprise


The Degustation box is a new concept where you get a monthly subscription and each month you get a surprise box in the post. Its full of a number of random items and you don't know what's coming and it it changes each month. I was sent the February box with no idea what was going to be included.

I have been asked to make some recipes with the contents of the box, now this is really random group of products and very difficult to make anything, for instance there was energy drinks and apple crisps and  biscuits but I thought I would try and make a bread-and-butter pudding using the ready sliced malt loaf Soreen Tostie Bread. We love malt loaf and now you can get it ready sliced and I thought it would make a really nice bread and butter pudding.


I buttered the slices of the Soreen Toastie Loaf and layered them in the baking dish.


Mixing 5 eggs with approximately 1 cup of milk and poured it over the slices.

I let the egg soak in for about 20 minutes before baking in the oven at 180o for about 45 minutes.


It was bubbling when I took it out of thre oven, let stand for about 5 minutes before serving and a quick dust with icing sugar makes it look very exotic.


This pudding would be lovely sliced and served with cream, ice cream, custard or even yoghurt.

    1. I love this toasted too, but the bread and butter pudding was a fun experiment.

  3. I've not heard about these boxes. What an odd bunch of ingredients to put together. Your pudding on the other hand sounds lovely. I love Soreen.

    1. It is a strange collection of products - nothing goes with anything else. The pudding was nice though.

  4. Love the idea of a malt loaf pudding, bet it was really tasty. I made my first ever malt loaf a couple of weeks ago and it tasted nearly as good as Soreen ;-)

    1. Funnily enough it wasn't as sweet as you would expect, and went very well with cream and ice cream!

  10. Oooh Soreen. It reminds me of (boarding) school, in a good way. We used to club together and buy it for tea. I loved it. Thanks for the reminder. GG

  11. I have read a lot about these I am reluctant to get one because I am always worried that 2-3 item sin the box might be what I don't use since its a random selection.
