Bread and Butter Pudding Recipe

bread and butter pudding recipe
I don’t know about you but I am looking for a bit of comfort at the moment. Sometimes we do just need a big bowl of comfort to make us feel better. I really wish my Nanny were here because she was such an amazing comfort with her hugs. As a child I would squish in beside her and just breathe her in – I wish I could do that now.  She was also the most amazing cook; cauliflower cheese, jackets with crispy skins and of course bread and butter pudding. I loved nothing more than being in the kitchen with my nanny or waiting for her to produce one of her amazing comforting dishes. So, the other night as I wasn’t able to get a hug from her I made bread and butter pudding. It wasn’t as good as hers or the hug but the taste was familiar and yes comforting. So I thought I’d share my super easy and delicious recipe for making bread and butter pudding for a little warm comfort.
