Best bread for masala tea butter bread pudding?
Suggestion - It’s best to use a soft plain or sweet bread:
Plain regular white bread – sliced, unsliced, loaf, block, rolls, hot dog or hamburger buns.
Raisin bread or other similar flavored breads which will suit a sweet dessert taste.
Unsalted Buttery breads – like brioche and challah
Stale plain cake – Our chef suggests he personally is not the sort to leave leftover cake lying around until it becomes stale, but if you happen to, then by all means use it. Just be a touch more gentle when tossing in egg mixture
