Bread and Butter Pudding
This recipe is great for when you find those stale slices of bread left at the end of the loaf.
It is important to use stale bread as fresh bread would create a soggier pudding. For best results soak the bread overnight, this allows for better absorption of the custard mix and ultimately will result in a better finished dish.
Use up - As well as using up your leftover bread, you can use up those bananas which are bruised or riper than you would like to have as a snack.
Variations - If you don't have any leftover bread, stale croissants are a great alternative. You could add some sliced dried apricots at the same time as the sultanas. You can serve with hot custard, some cream or a caramel sauce.
Extra flavour - Adding some cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger or vanilla to the recipe will create a warming flavour.
Freezer advice - This dish can be pre-made then frozen; if cooking from frozen, cook for a further 5-10 minutes.
Allergy advice - This versatile dish is easily adapted to avoid allergens and be suitable for most diets.
