I have just been reading the topic about the return of the good old pud, and have to say they have never died out in our house. However some of them have been brought into our busy full lives whilst still, I think retaining their original appeal. My bread and butter pudding is still prepared in the same way, slices of buttered bread layered with brown sugar and sultanas. The custard made from 2 eggs beaten into blood hot milk and poured over the bread which is left to stand for an hour(if time) if not 10 minutes will do, then the dish is cooked in the microwave for 4 minutes on high (full power) and then 20 minutes on the defrost setting. It rises, browns and tastes delicious, and cooks while you eat your main course.
