Oh my oh my, this is just stellar! I love a good bread and butter pudding and this one seriously is great! YUMMO!
I made this using freshly baked banana bread and freeze dried red berries, which worked out very well.
I was out of butter, but since my banana bread was moist, I winged it using just the milk (soy milk) and it was perfect! I will surely make this often again!
My only issue was that my berries at the top burnt after 30 min or so, but I covered the pudding after that and the crust then stayed crunchy and nicely brown and not burnt.
THANK YOU SO MUCH for sharing this winner with us, Elmotoo!

Very easy pudding to make and uses everyday ingredients. I used dried currants as the fruit as I had them left-over from Christmas cooking. Also just buttered one side of the bread. Cooked up nicely and the top browned beautifully. I think the pudding needed an egg or two added to the milk as the bread underneath stayed soggy , whereas most bread 'n'butter puds will form a baked custard. Photos to be posted
This pudding went together in no time at all for me! I'm sure I changed the intended taste/texture of this pudding since I used a heavy & nutty whole wheat bread as well as quartered dried apricots, which all made for A VERY TASTY BREAD PUDDING!

Mmmmmmm.....I love this pudding. I only used the fruit on half of it since I have a couple kids who don't like them on bread pudding, but we loved it. I served it with Custard on the top.....delicious. I'm so glad you chose me as you camera-less chef which in turn led me to this easy delicious bread pudding. Definately a keeper.
