    I had some sourdough bread to use up, so based my pudding recipe on this one. I omitted the butter, and instead of dried fruit used fresh figs and nectarine slices on top. Used maple syrup instead of honey or sugar. Was lovely!  -  13 Feb 2016


    My husband and I really enjoyed it. I used raisin bread and cooked it in the microwave on high for 10 minutes and it worked out really well. Thanks for sharing  -  23 Aug 2014
