    I've used this a couple of times with variations.  -  02 Apr 2014


    This recipe is delicious and it cooked perfectly. I used wholemeal bread ends and made breadcrumbs in a food processor and then added the milk which soaked in immediately. I then added the other ingredients and cooked for just over an hour. I added demerera sugar on the top whilst still warm which gives it a little crunch. I was delighted with the results.  -  28 Apr 2017


    Darvulya, Plum pudding, or christmas pudding as we brits call it is made from Suet and is steamed. This recipe IS the British Bread pudding that we all grew up on, smells and tastes fantastic. I also used left over cake (i carve and make Birthday cakes) If you are looking for that great stodgy heart warming dish you grew up on, bake this, sprinkle some sugar on top, grab a cuppa and enjoy. Thanks for taking the time to list this for us all to enjoy!!!  -  12 Oct 2008  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
