For this week I had an idea. To make one pudding two ways. Today I’m sharing a traditional Old Fashioned Bread and Butter Pudding and then on Friday I will share a more modern take on the traditional recipe.
For those of you who don’t know, bread and butter pudding is made up of layers of buttered bread with cinnamon and raisins. It’s then baked in a custard. It’s best made with day old, stale bread which is why the pudding was invented in the first place. As a way to use up old bread without wasting it.
In 13th century England, bread pudding was known as “poor man’s pudding,” as it was a popular dish with the lower classes. Today however the dish has had a bit of a revival and you can find it on the menu of many trendy establishments. People love retro!
You can serve this old fashioned bread and butter pudding with cream, custard or even ice cream. Have you ever tried bread and butter pudding? On Friday I’ll be using brioche bread and some other flavours so stay tuned for that!
