Hints and tips

• Clotted cream is a great alternative for the tangy cream.
• Any bread can be used for this dish, although we like the tang of sourdough.
• Leftover croissants or danishes can be substituted for the bread in this dish.
• Bread and butter pudding can also be baked in the oven on Moisture Plus with Fan Plus at 180°C with 3 manual bursts of steam. Release the bursts of steam at 1 minute, 15 minutes and 30 minutes. Bake for 45 minutes.
