A very British pud of summer fruit and chewy sourdough soaked in custard, with an irresistible crunchy top
Ilove bread pudding, and not only for its taste. I buy relatively expensive bread, usually sourdough, figuring that it is more nutritious, with its slow rise and good ingredients, and that it makes a more filling, satisfying meal. When it starts to harden, and even a splash of water cannot revive it, I love to find other ways to use it up – I hate the thought of binning it. Whether sweet or savoury, there are endless ways to use a slightly stale loaf with excellent results, but this is a good one. Follow this link for recipe.
