Traditional Bread Pudding
Casting my mind back to days like those of the winter of 1963, I was reminded of the importance of avoiding waste and my love of bread puddings made with stale bread. This wartime variation comes closest to the bread pudding in my memory, but is quite different from modern bread puddings. It is paler with less fruit and spice - so don't expect the result to be like the shop-bought varieties. Although I did once find something close to it in the National Trust cafe at Chartwell.
