Recipe – Bread and Butter Pudding – with Gluten Free option

I’ve been experimenting with recipes my Nan used to do, hot puddings with every single evening meal (not just on Sundays!) I’ve done the treacle sponge and had a go at another of her favourites, bread and butter pudding. If you like custard, it is a forgotten gem of a meal finale! This also works…

This is a traditional Italian chocolate cake,…
