Blackberry Bread and Butter Pudding


4 slices white bread (crusts removed)
1/2 lb. blackberries
Brown sugar
Double cream


Heat oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit. Generously butter four slices white bread (crusts removed). Lay half the bread in a shallow baking dish. Cover with half a pound of blackberries and sprinkle with brown sugar. Cover with the remaining bread, buttered side up. Dust with more sugar and a splash of cognac. Bake for 20-25 mins. Drizzle with double cream.

Servings: Serves two

Bubble and Squeak


50g butter
Chopped roast potatoes
Cooked cabbage
Vegetables (various)
Onions (optional)


Tastes best made from the leftovers of your Sunday roast, so quantities depend on how much you ate the night before. Melt 50g butter in a saucepan. Add chopped roast potatoes, heat through, then mash. The odd lump is perfectly acceptable. Add roughly equal amounts of cooked cabbage or whatever vegetables you have lying around—spinach, peas, or sliced sprouts. Season with salt and pepper. Transfer to a frying pan full of sizzling butter and perhaps some fried onions. Brown on both sides and drizzle with warm gravy.

Servings: Servings vary
