We recommend the use of multigrain bread in this healthy dessert recipe as it provides fibre to your diet and adds texture to the pudding as compared to the usual white bread variety.
For parties or family gatherings, you can serve healthy desserts for pudding desserts instead of the usual sweet milky bread puddings, so do try this recipe which will please the health conscious.
