Bread and butter pudding makes a lovely dessert, and is so easy to create. It is in essence slices of buttered bread combined with dried fruit oven baked with milk and eggs. Bread and butter pudding is something that many people associate with traditional British school dinners but the origins are in fact in a centuries old recipe called whitepot!
Bread and butter pudding was at one time used as a way of consuming stale bread and some recipes recommend the use of old bread. It should be remembered that traditionally baked bread starts to go hard after 24-48 hours and some kinds of modern loaf are designed to stay soft longer. These needs to be taken into account.
I Ideally it should be light in texture with a nice crispy golden top and served hot is a perfect finish to a meal, if you really want to spoil yourself, put home made custard or ice cream on when you serve.

"Dear all, following up Mary's comments, I think that have stale or dry bread makes a huge difference to the end result. If the bread is too moist it just doesn't seem to taste the same. Molli from Hythe"
