Maltese Bread Pudding ( Using up Stale Bread)

Maltese Bread Pudding ( Using up Stale Bread) created by Wild Thyme Flour

This is a recipe to use up stale bread, originally devised when it was considered a sin to throw away breadbecause of teh association with Christ . The result is a luscious fudgy cake that can be cut up into squares and has nothing to do with thne usual bread and butter puddings . I love to eat this cake in summer , cold from the fridge. Please do try it, it wont cost you much to make. You might be pleasantly surprised. I use a maltese crusty loaf but any bread will do.
