Oh you thought bread and butter pudding was just a sweet dessert? Well, think again. As winter approaches all I crave is moreish food that feels like a warm hug and that is exactly what this recipe is. My pudding will become your winter staple and you  will unashamedly polish off bowls of it. Tonight I am serving it on the side of a roast chicken with a maple, thyme and butter glaze.

      I honestly can admit to eating this more often than I should- summer or winter! But after a cold day this pudding feels like a warm bath! xox C
