NOT to be confused with Bread and Butter Pudding which is a dessert, Bread Pudding is an old English dish which turns out more like a bar cake. This recipe is a more modern version of the one my grandmother used to make. Although Bread Pudding can be served warm with custard as a dessert, we rarely ate it this way. For us, it was more of a snack food. It tastes just as good at room temperature as it does hot. Grandma often tucked a slice or two into our school lunchboxes. When my brother joined the Navy he craved Bread Pudding and Mum had to pay a fortune to post one to him - clear across the country! This recipe was passed on to Mum by my older brother's friend, the late Nell McDonald. Nell was a great cook and I'm delighted to acknowledge her as the source of this recipe.
