Bread and Butter Pudding


I prefer warm desserts in the Autumn and winter and one of my family favorite desserts is bread and butter pudding. It warming, hearty and simply delicious mid week dessert that can be made in a jiffy and does not really need much preparation. It's one of those desserts that you simply layer everything in a baking dish , pour over a liquid mixture and pop it in the oven and forget about it for 30 minutes, which gives you ample time to prepare your main course. 
I got this Bread and Butter pudding recipe from Sunrise Senior Living care homes  who offer a wide choice of delicious and healthy meals, all devised by award winning chefs.The only changes I made to the original recipe is that I used brown bread instead of white and served the custard separately so that each person could choose to add it to their dessert to their requirement.
