I think Bread Pudding has to be the Toddster's favourite all time dessert, next to apple pie. So, this week, when I found myself having a bit too much bread in the house due to the Toddster's having bought the wrong kind of bread when he picked it up for me (men ARE from Mars!) I knew exactly what to do with the excess!
I confess I am quite fond of it too. Not only is bread pudding quite easy to make, but it also makes a fabulously delicious use of stale bread! It's a win/win situation.
This is a delicious version stogged full of not one, not two, but three kinds of dried fruits. Cherries, blueberries and cranberries. Lots of berrylicious going on . . . and then there is the added nutty crunch of chopped toasted pecans!
But that's not all . . . no, that's not all. There is an added dimension to this dessert that you will not want to miss out on!
This pudding's crowning glory is this delicious Vanilla Sauce that you spoon, warm . . . over top of the warm pudding as you serve it out. This is the gilding on the lily!
You will NOT want to pass this by! Trust me on this!
