As well as being delicious, bread and butter pudding is an ideal way to use up the rest of a loaf of bread before it goes stale.
If you live alone, you may often find that you can't get through a whole loaf while it is still fresh enough for sandwiches. Rather than waste it, why not enjoy this warming nursery dessert, with a touch of grown up sophistication.
This is a REALLY SIMPLE dessert recipe, and the only way you can spoil it is to cook it for too long. Placing your pan inside a larger pan of water, will help to prevent overcooking.
The quantities below serve 2, but you may like to double it and serve the remainder, cold, the next day.
