Raspberry Bread & Butter Pudding

READY IN: 1hr 10mins
Recipe by Marli

I found this recipe amongst my mum's magazine clippings from the 80's, I haven't tried it yet but it looks & sounds fantastic! I guess you could use fresh raspberries instead of frozen if you wish.

This recipe is superb. I decided to akter it slightly by adding a thin layer of marzipan in between each layer of bread, with outstanding results. I served it with double cream mixed with amaretto liqeur. At my dinner party, a couple of my guests who confessed to be "non dessert lovers" said it was absolutely marvellous and gulped it down. Great success & I'll definately do this again.
