Chocolatey but not too sweet (and I don't use that as a positive usually)

I freestyled the chocolate bread and butter pudding a bit because using up bits of various slightly old loaves is what this pudding is all about, it seems a waste to cut crusts off, I like a breadier pudding than the original recipe and I didn’t have the cash on me for the rum!

I don’t know if this would have been even better if I’d followed the original recipe, but it is (I’m eating a slice now!) delicious. Like a brownie, but somehow feels better for you… I don’t know if that’s actually the case but I’m not going to look it up for fear of bursting my bubble!

The crusts provide a chewy interlude to the squidy chocolatey goodness and the various breads can’t be told from each other so no need for all white bread really. Really really good, you could serve this to friends over for dinner, supply a bit of cream to pour over it and voila, new favourite.

Extra useful that you can (and should) prepare it 2 days in advance to increase the soakage of chocolate through the bread. Click here for the original recipe and my version…
