I really do hate having to throw things away so when I realised that half of a pack of croissants was really too dry to eat I just couldn’t bring myself to put them in the bin. So I went on a scout around the kitchen and found half a pot of fresh cream in the fridge that needed using and those annoying bags of things in the store cupboards where there is just a spoonful of things that need using before the packaging can be thrown away. A few sultanas and some cranberries in one cupboard and the end of a bag of castor sugar in another.
We very rarely have a sweet after our main meal but with the addition of a couple of eggs and some spices – cinnamon, ginger and nutmeg – I was able to make a very satisfying and interesting take on a traditional English bread and butter pudding. Very unexpected but very tasty…. Mmmm-mmmmmmm!!
