Great. Did need extra cooking but we liked it a bit runny. I blow torched the sugar and it gave it a lovely brulee style. Small portions though. Mary

Didnt like it at all. Nothing like a traditional bread and butter pud. Id much rather take longer making it and get a good flavour

If you really like Bread & butter pudding, AVOID THIS. It really is not very nice, especially if you compare it to a real traditional version.

We have this so often!! its the easiest tastiest pudding. I use crustless 50/50 bread and taste the difference custard, the type of custard does make a difference, used cheap before and though still tasty nowhere near as good. Usually add some extra fruit. Never had a problem with the cooking times. Its just as nice the next day - I make just the same amount for the 2 of us as I would 4!!!
