Bread and Bread Pudding (1 of 1)-7 Recently a follower on Instagram asked for a recipe for bread and butter pudding and that’s when it dawned on me that I hadn’t added this recipe to my blog.   I have 2 bread pudding recipes(bread pudding, pumpkin butter croissant bread pudding) but no bread and butter pudding, which is quite odd seeing how I grew up eating the latter. Bread and Bread Pudding (1 of 1)Bread and Bread Pudding (1 of 1)-3 Bread and butter pudding is a type of bread pudding that is common in British cuisine; Guyana is a former British colony and some of their cuisine has remained with us.   What makes bread and butter pudding a bit different from bread pudding is that slices of bread are buttered before being soaked in a rich egg custard and studded with raisins.  The top of the slices peek above the custard and provides a nice contrasting texture to the custard. Bread and Bread Pudding (1 of 1)-9
