This is a decidedly not fancy bread pudding but instead is more of a whimsical, comforting nursery dish. Its main distinction is that the slices of bread are buttered before being layered in the dish. It’s ideal for children, who often don’t like fancy flavors interfering with the sweet simplicity of a sweet dessert. But even adults will be delighted with the mouthwatering crunch of the edges of toasted bread against the delicate custard. In Ireland, this pudding is, like so many others, served with a spoonful of whipped cream.
