Blueberries are so yummy, especially in this dessert! Cook time includes time for makeing sauce. The sweet dessert known as Bread pudding (not be confused with bread and butter pudding) is rather more popular in the UK than in the US, but it is hardly unknown in America, especially in the south. Bread Pudding has been around a long time. It’s been around in England since the 13th century. It has its origins as a source of food for the poorer elements of society, and was in fact called “Poor Man’s Pudding”.
