Pita Bread & Butter Pudding with Fig Jam – A Lebanese Twist on a Kiwi Classic

 

Bread and butter pudding is a part of many kiwi’s childhoods. It’s a fast, delicious and easily made dessert for when you feel like there is nothing in the cupboards. It’s perfect for that leftover bread, but if you’re like us, you more often have leftover pita bread. 

This recipe solely uses fig jam for sweetness, keeping the additional refined sugar content down. It can be substituted for your other favorite jams.

And it is easy! Get your kids involved and make this heart-warming desert.
