Pooh's Bread & Butter Pudding // Fictional Feasts



Christopher Robin said, "What do you like doing best in the world Pooh?"...
And Pooh, when he had thought it all out, said, "What I like best in the whole world is Me and Piglet going to see You, and You saying, 'What about a little something?' and Me saying, 'Well, I wouldn't mind a little something, should you, Piglet,' and it being a hummy sort of day outside, and birds singing."


  (A "hummy" sort of day. Oh, how I love Pooh Bear.)

  At a quaint little curio shop in the village of Goring-on-Thames we found The Pooh Cook Book by Katie Stewart. It's the cutest little thing, and the recipes in it are so simple and British and definitely Pooh-ish.

 Yesterday, I decided to make something I'd never made before: Bread and Butter Pudding.


"...And we must all bring Provisions."
"Bring what?"
"Things to eat."
"Oh!" said Pooh happily. "I thought you said Provisions."


“It is more fun to talk with someone who doesn't use long, difficult words but rather short, easy words like "What about lunch?” 


 It was delicious! At the risk of sounding too much like Nigella Lawson, I'd say this is the ultimate comfort food. It's so sweet and warm and rainsin-y. Perfect for a rainy autumn day.

 Ever tried Bread and Butter Pudding before? What's your favorite rainy day dessert?

  3. Bread pudding is one of my favorite foods! When I was younger I never liked it, but I tried it a few years ago I realized my younger self was insane. Glad you liked it too! Thanks for commenting on Inklined!

  4. More fictional feasts! And Pooh! And Bread pudding! I haven't had it in ages...like Sarah, my younger self thought it was gross (mushy bread, ewww) but I'm like 99.999% sure if I tried it again I'd love it.
    also these pictures are so lovely.

    1. The trick is to eat it while it's still hot. If it's cold it tastes more like mushy bread. Oh, and thank you! New camera. I'm still not sure how to use it (my first DSLR!!) but I'm working on it.

    2. New DSLR? Do you mind my asking what kind is it? I hope I'm not being annoying, it's just I want to get a camera and I'm trying to figure out what kind to get. :)

    3. Of course! My new camera is a Canon EOS 400D. It's great (such a step-up from my last), but it's actually old-ish and isn't being made anymore. There are newer versions now. Just let me know if you want to know anything else! I'd be happy to help :)

  6. What about the Hunny? ;) I have been absolutely in love with Pooh Bear since birth, and am very tempted to try this, even though I've never had bread pudding...

    I still think these Fictional Feasts are brilliant! I was rereading Ella Enchanted awhile back, and all of the food sounded so good, and it made me think of this. Maybe you should try to make some of Mandy's yummy fairy food sometime. :) idk. it was just a thought I had.

    1. We were tragically all out of Hunny! :D How bad is that?

      Great idea!! Ella Enchanted is one of my favorites. I'll have to flip through it and see what I can come up with!
