Boozey Bread and Butter Pudding

I always find a well made bread and butter pudding pretty hard to resist, especially when its still warm just out of the oven

This a fantastic way of using up any left over or stale bread you have, I've lightly baked the cubed bread before making the pudding, You don't have to but it helps soak up all those delicious flavours

I've also soaked my dried fruit beforehand in some Amaretto liquor, you don't have to do this either , but it will help take your pudding to another level, You can use anything you want really, rum, brandy, Baileys

The argument as to what you serve with this pudding, is for another day i think, you cannot go far wrong with custard, ice cream never really seems to do it justice, clotted cream is a great choice, but, i'll leave that decision to you

This recipe will serve 4 people
