And you read me right, I serve this easy bread and butter pudding for breakfast.

It’s not too soggy or dry but has a consistency that lets you cut into the bread pudding easily.

 

The bread pudding is filling enough that you can serve the dessert for breakfast instead of pancakes for the holiday season as well.

Want to give the bread and

breakfast pudding a

Sri Lankan twist?

 

If you want to use pieces of bread and buns to turn it into a Sri Lankan bread pudding version then use a few coco buns(kibula banis).

 

They turn out perfectly crunchy on the top with the sugar already on top caramelizing to give it a darker crust. 

 

Drizzle a bit of melted chocolate or treacle and you’ve got a bread and butter casserole the kids would love.
