Easy Bread Pudding

    1 hour 40 minutes

    This is a very easy bread pudding which my mother used to make all the time when I was a little girl. Nothing was wasted in our house, so leftover bread, too stale for sandwiches, was always made into a pudding. Delicious hot or cold.

    Soaked the bread in cold strong tea. Gave the bread pudding a darker colour and more flavour. Will make this again as it is the first bread pudding I have made successfully!Perhaps I didn't squeeze enough liquid out on other occasions - previous efforts were always too wet and didn't cook properly. This is a good recipe.  -  07 Dec 2011  (Review from Allrecipes UK & Ireland)


    I didn't squeeze out enough water so the pudding was rather soggy when I turned it out and nearly binned it. Left it on the side overnight and the following morning it was delicious... :D  -  07 Oct 2016  (Review from Allrecipes UK & Ireland)
