This is English BREAD Pudding !!! not Bread & Butter Pudding. Bread pudding is like a heavy wet fruit cake and Bread and butter pudding is a light custardy "nursery" pudding which must be eaten warm. (I am English)



I'd like to try this recipe but have no clue what the ingredient "mixed spice" would be. Can anyone help?



This is not an English Bread and Butter Pudding as stated previously, the two are wildly different, it is a pretty good Bread Pudding recipe however. I am English so I do know!
