I love baking fresh bread for toasts or to enjoy with homemade fruit compotes and butter. I sometimes make more than I have the time to use. When I have extra bread I sometimes let them go old so I can later make baked bread pudding. I am particularly fond of this English bread pudding recipe.  It used to be my late grandpa’s favorite.  He used to put so many raisins and butter, the recipes were ridiculously rich and oh so sinful!bread pudding

Did you know bread pudding was a way to use up old, stale bread so it wouldn’t go to waste? It used to be considered as a lower class food in the 13th Century England. If you ask me, I am not sure why anyone would turn up their nose at some deliciously baked pudding as the poor people surely know how to be creative with the little they had.

This recipe practically cost nothing as you would normally throw away the bread. There is a good chance you already have some milk in the fridge ( Non-dairy, I hope!) and butter!  Of course, you can always decide to make things fancy by adding dried and fresh fruits, make a nice warm sauce to serve it with but I love keeping it somewhere in between. I leave the sauce option up to you!

P.S. This pudding taste exquisite topped with fresh basil!
