    French Tart's Note:

    The Dominican nuns of Worcestershire, in England, created a tasty bread pudding that became known as 'White Ladies Pudding' due to the familiar white habits of the Order. The recipe is well worth reviving and is an unusual variation on the more usual fruited bread and butter pudding. I found this recipe on a British sugar website, and have enjoyed making it so much, that I thought I would share the recipe with all of you - this is my slightly amended recipe based on the original. (Orginal recipe taken from Billington's Sugar)

      This was incredible! This was our dessert to Sunday dinner of a pork roast with carrots. What a wonderful, comforting dessert on a chilly night. The only thing I did different was to toast my coconut and to sprinkle cinnamon/sugar on top of the cream when I served it. Thank you so much for the delicious dessert. I'll be making this again, for sure! :)
