Bread and Butter Pudding – Recipe No. 144

I have 1/4 loaf of very dry sliced bread, several days past it’s best before date so I think a ‘Bread and Butter Pudding’ is called for!

I love this pudding…. cheap, delicious and comforting.

One thought on “Bread and Butter Pudding – Recipe No. 144

  1. I LOVE bread and butter pudding! I didn’t have it until I was an adult as my mum loathed it, put off perhaps by too much as a child, during rationing?

    I made a date cake from my wartime recipe book this week and on my, it is soo good. I will definitely make it again.
