Where Did Bread Pubbing Originate?
Pudding dates back to the Middle Ages and is now known as custard. Bread pudding originated in England in the 11th century. It was created to repurpose stale bread because food was scarce, and nothing was left to waste. It became known as the “poor man's pudding” in later centuries. It was made with only bread, sugar, spices, and boiling water during that time.
Bread pudding has since evolved and become popular in many countries. Each country has put their own twist on this dessert. It's no longer considered a “poor man's pudding” as it can be found in elegant eateries. There are many recipes for bread pudding, and you can even make bread pudding in a slow cooker.
