White Choc Croissant Bread and Butter Pudding Recipe

This weekend I was in charge of arranging all the food and drink for my sister in laws hen party. Not a small task at all. But saying that I of course in my full feeder state made sure there was enough food for 15 girls and then some. And then some even more.  So much so that I had quite a lot to bring home as everyone else took the train to Brighton. So what do you do when you have a mountain of old croissants, white chocolate, milk and sugar. Make bread and butter pudding of course! Typically British and very naughty! I scattered in a little dark chocolate and raisins for good measure. Don’t ask me what happened on the hen do. What happens in Brighton stays in Brighton. Although I will say that our Butler in the Buff did burn his bottom on the oven….. I adapted the recipe from this cute book, which you can get your hands on here –
