This is one of those iconic recipes, that every family in Gibraltar has and each one has a special twist to make it special. Some persons add a packet of flan powder, some add fruit, whichever you use, I’m sure it’s a little something passed down generation to generation- the way grandmother made it.
This is my grandmother’s recipe, and – in my opinion- the best one there is. Yes I am biased! It’s the traditional bread pudding recipe I’ve been fed all my life, and every morsel brings back memories of a simpler time surrounded by family and endless days spent lazying on the beach.
Give this a try it’s great with day old bread, but particularly perfect with day old challah bread – recipe on this website too.
