A really fruity & spicy bread pudding which has a drop of brandy in it too! There are quite a few bread pudding recipes around, but this is the one I always make - it was my grandmother's recipe and I remember eating this at her house when I was little! I added the brandy one Christmas when I made this as a last minute Christmas-type pudding! You don't have to add the brandy - just add the fruit with the other ingredients, after the bread has been soaked in milk. Serve warm as a dessert with cream, ice-cream or custard. You used to be able to buy these in a local bakery where my grandmother lived - they were sold cold, I always prefer mine warm, but it's up to you!
