It is around this time of year that I allow myself to buy the first bottle of my favourite winter treat, Baileys. For those who don’t know Baileys is an alcoholic drink which is a buttery blend of whisky, cream and vanilla. I.love.cream and have often made a “pasta sauce” by just tipping 150ml of double cream over some salmon and spaghetti so its it’s no wonder that I have to strictly monitor my Baileys consumption.
Now that I work 9-5 I like to come home and pour myself a glass over ice as if i’m a terribly rich word-weary gentleman trying to wind down from my work stresses when really I’m just a 21 year old student looking for a sugar fix. They ran out of small bottles in the supermarket so I had to buy a HUGE bottle which weighed about as much as my little brother and so I used some to make this baileys bread and butter pudding. This is a really quick and easy comforting dessert, I have used a Panettone bread which already contains dried fruit and lots of flavour but this can be substituted for a plain brioche with a handful of raisins and sultanas.
