DSC_0804This week has been incredibly fun with the #SundaySupper family, we have been creating retro recipes, those recipes that immediately transport us to our childhood.
Those recipes that our mothers and grandmothers cooked over and over, it brings back many memories for me personally, the worst was when my grandmother stopped cooking my favorite foods as a child.
The good news is that many of them are on the list of recipes this week and I can make them again and enjoy.
One dessert that I loved was the bread pudding, my grandmother baked it once a week because usually we had day-old bread.
My recipe is very similar to my grandmother, I made just a few changes because I think that she cooked is delicious.
So I hope you enjoy it and try it.

  3. Nice! Bread pudding is a dessert that we tend to make in the rainy season here, its so delicious and I like the idea of reusing stale bread. I never thought of adding Nutmeg though, but it makes sense. Nutmeg relaxes one and Bread pudding is a dish that reminds one of a comfortable warming home. =)
