  1. Sounds great, Esme. I LOVE custard so will definitely try it .SO different to British bread pudding. This was popular in the second world war for obvious reasons. My mother used to put in as much fruit as she could spare (chopped left-overs,, sultanas, currents, glace etc.,) Very tasty but filling! Cheers. x
