Quick Recipe for a British Bread Butter Pudding at Home


15th July was my father’s birthday and this recipe is dedicated to my father – papa was my best friend. I was born very late to my parents but the age gap never mattered. My father was uber-cool, understanding and was always up to play along with me.

I lost my father 20 years ago and not one day has passed when I have not remembered something he said or something he believed in. I consider myself to be very similar to him in many ways – a daddy’s girl all the way.

My father spent most of his life in the United Kingdom, making him very British in most of his ways. He absolutely loved British & continental food.

As an ode and remembrance to him today, I have recreated one of his favourite desserts, Bread Butter Pudding.
