Highland Bread and Butter Pudding Recipe

As the traditional damp and cold of a Scottish January starts to seep into the air, the house, the bones and the spirits there couldn't be a better time for some inner cheer in the form of a hearty pudding. With a little addition of some warming Toffee Whisky Liqueur we think this would make a splendid dish for a jolly Burns supper, or just a cosy winter's day feast.
