Bread Pudding

A wonderful British Classic, Bread Pudding has always been one of my favourites and is a great way to use up old stale bread!

Bread pudding always reminds me of my Nan, she made wonderful Bread Pudding, and this is a close as I’ve ever come to recreating her recipe. It does taste so good, I like to add a little extra cinnamon to my mixture for that deeper
