Bread Pudding is one of my all time favorite desserts and I think just about every country in the world has a version of it – just like Rice Pudding!

I’ve already presented the Caribbean Coconut Bread Pudding here and NOLA style New Orleans Bourbon Bread Pudding here. I’ve even presented a savory version of bread pudding here! Now it’s time to cross the pond over to the UK!

Bread & Butter Pudding is a little different in that slices of buttered bread are layered into a casserole dish before the custard mix is poured over.
