Bread pudding is one of my favourites for many reasons. I can use up all the left-over bread from sandwhich sides and crusts and it serves as a nutritious between meals snack for kids. It can also be given to a baby who is on semi-solids. Can be served as dessert to anyone. Above all easy to make!
Yes of course, I have used brown bread. If you havent already been converted to brown bread, read Bread:Brown or White.
This pudding can also be steamed in a pressure cooker, however I prefer the crust you get when its baked.
