I know that Gordon Ramsay’s bread and butter pudding sounds like a bore. But in actuality, it is an amazing recipe. I had the same prejudice when I heard the name of the recipe. I was shocked that the recipe and the end product were anything but boring. I mean, the bread isn’t your regular bread but pain au chocolat.

The pain au chocolat, as you know, is a type of French pastry filled with dark chocolate. This delicious ‘bread’ is baked with the delicious goodness of cinnamon and apricot jam. It is soaked in a rich milk and cream mixture and then baked until golden. You can’t imagine the aroma that fills your kitchen when you bake this pudding. 

The pudding looks damn appetizing too. I mean, the pastry has become tender after soaking and baking and looks golden and glazed. Can you tell I am in love? Try the recipe and you will fall in love too. Try some of the other best recipes by Gordon Ramsay
