To be honest I can’t imagine why Mum would have cut out and saved this recipe. I doubt she’s ever tasted bourbon in her life and while she likes a glass of sherry or white wine, I’ve never seen her drink either brandy, cognac or whisky. She does like and often used to make the old style bread and butter pudding, maybe she thought one day she’d go wild…..
Bread and butter pudding was a family staple in our house when I was growing up as I’m sure it was in many homes. As this recipe says it’s a pretty cheap and foolproof dessert and the great thing is that you can use a variety of breads, stale cake, scones, rolls or even biscuits as the base. I’ve always thought lashings of cream poured over the top adds to the delight.
