Mum’s bread pudding

A pair of blackbirds frequent our garden – enticed in by the ground feed and crumbled bread I put out for them no doubt.

They nested in the shrubs at the bottom of my neighbour’s garden earlier in the year and I think they may have another brood.

Haven’t seen the female for a few days, but then I haven’t seen the male popping into the bushes, beak full of tasty morsels, either! Maybe it’s just wishful thinking – hope the local moggies haven’t got her!

The birds do like the bread and it is a bit special – baked on the premises by an Italian baker about five minutes’ walk away.

How lucky is that! It’s wonderful fresh, so I tend to get a large loaf every two days (makes good toast on the second day), which means there’s often some left. I have been giving it to the birds but I’m wondering about making some bread pudding.

Cherry Bread PuddingMy mother had the world’s best recipe, which she wrote down for me centuries ago and I now can’t find.

I haven’t thrown it away so it’s here somewhere and one day I’ll find it! Meantime I was flicking through my copy of Just One Pot and came across a recipe for Cherry Bread Puddings.

From the picture they look fantastic, so I’ll give them a go. Who knows, they man run my mum’s a close second!

Have a good week
