Savoiardi Pudding


Pudding Di Savoiardi is a traditional Italian dessert made with layers of savoiardi biscuits, sultanas, candied fruit, and a creamy mixture of eggs, milk, and sugar. This dessert is carefully prepared by creating alternating layers of biscuits and ingredients, and then baked in a water bath until the custard sets. Once cooled, the pudding is sliced and served cold as a dessert.

Savoiardi Pudding

Total Time 1 hour



  • Prepare the cream by whisking the whole eggs with the sugar until obtaining a homogeneous and foamy mixture.
  • Pour the hot milk into the egg and sugar mixture, stirring well to incorporate all the ingredients.
  • Take a smooth and tall mold and line it with parchment paper, in order to facilitate the removal of the pudding once cooked.
  • Arrange a layer of Savoiardi biscuits on the bottom of the mold.
  • Sprinkle a layer of sultana raisins and candied fruit over the biscuits.
  • Continue creating alternating layers of biscuits, raisins, and candied fruit until all the ingredients are used.
  • Pour the prepared cream into the mold, making sure to completely cover the biscuits so that they soak well.
  • Let the pudding rest for a few minutes, allowing the biscuits to swell and absorb the cream.
  • Prepare a pot with hot water for the water bath.
  • Place the mold with the pudding inside the pot with hot water, making sure that the water does not enter the mold.
  • Bake the pudding at a moderate temperature, about 180°C, for about 45-50 minutes or until the cream thickens.
  • Once cooked, remove the mold from the water bath and let it cool completely.
  • Once cold, remove the pudding from the mold by gently pulling the parchment paper.
  • Slice the pudding and serve it cold as a dessert.


Add a dusting of cocoa powder on top of the pudding before serving.
