Bread, Butter & Jam Pudding

A classic and comforting warm pudding. This poor man’s pudding is a budget-friendly way to use less-than-fresh bread. Even though it dates back to the 1800s, bread and butter pudding is still a winter winner.

  • butter for spreading
  • Rhodes Quality Apricot Jam for spreading
  • 8 eggs
  • 625 ml (2½ C) milk
  • 250 ml (1 C) cream
  • 250 ml (1 C) brown sugar
  • 5 ml (1 t) cinnamon
