Bread and Butter Pudding is quite popular in the United Kingdom. The great thing is that the recipe is quite easy and simple and this is the reason that it’s widely made in homes besides being cooked in restaurants. I would suggest you to try this recipe if you want to master your cooking skills. To make the pudding crispier, use bread that is a day old. To give it a different aroma, spread grated nutmeg over the pudding. You can serve the pudding plain or with custard or whipped cream.
