Simon’s Bread and Butter Pudding is a fruity twist on the classic, with the addition of ripe bananas and juicy Medjool dates. It’s a great way to use up stale bread and store cupboard ingredients. Simon recommends leaving the custard to soak into the bread for half an hour before baking for a softer, gooier pudding.
