I made this ages ago and forgot to review!! Deelicious!! Love the flavours citrus, tart, cinnamon, I added some nutmeg and used 18%cream and 2%milk the result was a creamy, not too sweet pudding. I sprinkled some of the rhubarb on top hoping it would not sink into the mixture and it didn't!!!! I did not prepare the topping with the brown sugar. DH loved to eat bread pudding with cream or milk poured on top. I will make this again, with the topping next time!
I had got fresh rhubarb from my friends garden, so thought to make this dish. This is comfort food at it's best. I made it up in advance to take to a friends place and while we were eating dinner, I warmed it up in the oven. I served this with Vanilla Mascarpone Cream. Delicious! Thanks Kitten for posting another winner!
