Recipe by ANNE FAIRPO
"Bread pudding - the English variety, not to be confused with 'bread and butter pudding' - this is more like a spiced cake than a dessert."

6 1/4 cups
cubed whole wheat bread
1 1/4 cups
dried mixed fruit
Darvulya, Plum pudding, or christmas pudding as we brits call it is made from Suet and is steamed. This recipe IS the British Bread pudding that we all grew up on, smells and tastes fantastic. I also used left over cake (i carve and make Birthday cakes) If you are looking for that great stodgy heart warming dish you grew up on, bake this, sprinkle some sugar on top, grab a cuppa and enjoy. Thanks for taking the time to list this for us all to enjoy!!!
This isn't bread pudding. It's plum pudding. If you were looking for bread pudding, this isn't it.
If you have any of this pudding left over. When cold, cut into thick slices, melt butter in skillet and fry the slices until golden borwn and sprinkle with Demerara sugar. Serve with whipped cream or ice vanilla ice-cream.
This is the real bread pudding that my pommy mum makes - all the other connotations that i noticed in my mind are bread and butter puddings
Dad used to call this the good stodge and was what I grew up on with alot of siblings and was a great desert to use up stale bread (which didnt happen often lol)
Excellent - I leave out the peal though cant stand it.
A TRUE British bread pudding recipe, thank you. Every bit as good as my mother and grandmother made. I left out the mixed fruit because I don't like it and just added extra sultanas.
This is the best, just like mum made,save your stale bread and cake and make this, you wont be sorry. from a true BRIT.
This is a great recipe. I did reduce the 1 tablespoon nutmeg to 1/2 tablespoon. I couldn't find mixed fruit, so used golden raisins and currants. I've already made it twice in 2 days - it disappears so quickly.
this is a very versatile recipe, because I changed a lot of things (used leftover bagels for one, and added yogurt) and it still turned out very well. I would recommend it!
