Bread Pudding Please solves that eternal question ‘What’s for pud?’ It can easily be doubled up to serve more people and left-overs keep for days.  The joy of this pudding is that it is complete and ready to go once you’ve made it. Serve it warm.

Use up stale croissants or teacakes to make this pudding slightly different. Dried cranberries are also delicious and can be added with the sultanas
