I had this lovely flatmate by the name of Yasmeen when I stayed in the beautiful city of Cape Town. We had lots of good times together and she taught me how to make this easy bread pudding. You can adjust it to your taste by adding raisins or nuts or like my version go the whole hog and add chunks of wholenut chocolate. The secret ingredient is nutmeg that really makes this dessert so wicked!

I made 2 servings using orange marmalade and to make it diabetic friendly I sweetened with Splenda and skipped the chocolate and ice cream . I usually skip dessert, but this is worth making again! Thanks for sharing babette! Made for Bargain Basement Tag Game.
