I had always wanted to make a bread and butter pudding but it seemed overwhelming, not so this lovely simple recipe which gives heavenly results. I liked the portion control with the muffin-sized servings as it was very rich. I used brioche bread, dark choc chips instead of dried fruit and scraped out a vanilla bean instead of using vanilla essence. I liked the fact you could add dried fruit or chopped apple too, which made it very versatile. Thanks for posting this little gem.
