Bread and Butter Pudding

Bread and Butter Pudding is so easy to make. I remember having it regularly as a child and loved the combination of the fruits and custard-like filling in it.

This recipe, however, is a spruced up version of my mid-week bread and butter pudding. This is for weekend’s it’s a little bit indulgent and a bit less healthy than some but it tastes amazing and well worth the extra calories to get it right.

The difference, the addition of full-fat milk and double cream. Normally on a weekday, I would throw it together with just semi-skimmed milk but why not treat yourself at the weekend with these little extra’s.
