Soaked the bread in cold strong tea. Gave the bread pudding a darker colour and more flavour. Will make this again as it is the first bread pudding I have made successfully!Perhaps I didn't squeeze enough liquid out on other occasions - previous efforts were always too wet and didn't cook properly. This is a good recipe. - 07 Dec 2011


I didn't squeeze out enough water so the pudding was rather soggy when I turned it out and nearly binned it. Left it on the side overnight and the following morning it was delicious... :D - 07 Oct 2016
