Bread And Butter Pudding
My mom would make this for us if it was an especially cold day, if it was raining or if she made a surplus of sandwiches and had a bunch of bread edges that seemed like a waste to throw away. I don't know what it is about the smell of warm nutmeg and cinnamon that wafts through the house when this is in the oven, but it instantly transports me to my childhood. When tea time snacks were a serious thing and mum would make us something new and fun whenever she could.
There is something very comforting about bread, butter and the plump raisins that you bite into while devouring this pudding. Such simple ingredients, but such a special memory. I try to make this for my little miss now, and she loves it too. I pack it in her snack box and it is empty when she comes home :) I wonder if she shares it with her friends :)
So, if you have some bread on hand and don't know what to do with it, or, like my mum have a surplus of sides from sandwiches, give this one a whirl. I`m sure it will not disappoint!
