Grandad’s Old Fashioned Bread Pudding
This is such a gorgeous recipe for a pudding, hot or cold, or eaten as cake.. It has been in my family for I don’t know how long, we just call it Grandad’s..
Most English people know of Bread Pudding, but it is not widely available, the shop bought versions are just truly awful, sorry to say ! It is also not particularly in fashion nowadays, but whenever I serve it..it is incredibly received with real pleasure, and becomes quite a talking point!
It really is a favourite good old fashioned pudding /cake , comfort food at its very best,taking you for an enjoyable stroll down memory lane with its fruity, spicy, moist deliciousness ..
It makes use of dry, slightly past its best bread, ,moistened, then pumped full of flavour with dark muscovado sugar, dried fruits with peel and cherries, suet, ( vegetable suet or margarine/butter can be used instead ) mixed spice, marmalade,country eggs..and if you’re feeling indulgent a splash of whisky or Brandy goes well..
