Bread and Butter Pudding

Recipe by Jane McGettigan

This is a recipe that my grandmother would make with me. I can still smell it cooking all these year later. I loved going to stay with her on a Friday night. She would get all the ingredients out and get me to help her make it. I still can't make it as good as she did.
