Introduction

I got this recipe from an old issue of Better Homes and Gardens. I haven't made it yet, but it looks easy and a nice warm pudding for all you guys languishing in the Northern hemisphere! But mainly, I think it's useful because it uses up any leftover Horlicks you might have from making the Malteser Cake. The recipe suggests serving it with bought Honeycomb Ice-cream. I think it would be nice with Nigella's "Cinder Toffee" (from HTBADG) mixed into vanilla ice-cream. Enjoy!

    • How do you manage to get 25oml (ml?) of brown bread?
