Hmmm ! a delicious wintery pudd that warms you nicely on a cold winters night. I used a new Cranberry fruit bread available and the flavours all blended very well together. Will make again.
I made this as a brekky treat using some leftover coffee date bread, made for a lovely brekky with some vanilla yoghurt. Thanks Pat!
Good pud ! As it is a little cooler I decided to use my glut of apples and glut of bread - courtesy of DD having a part time job at Bakers Delight !! All went well - I only wished I had whipped cream to go with it and not low fat yoghurt !!
