“This is a slightly different bread pudding recipe. My mother thinks that it appeared sometime post-war when you were encouraged to use up old stale bread, I don't know about that but it's different from the recipes which call for buttered sliced bread with milk and eggs, which I think of as 'bread and butter pudding'. It is packed full of things which are fattening and bad for you so don't eat it every day!”
