BOOKISH BITES: Wet Nelly

DSC_1085

It may sound bizarre, but a Wet Nelly is a traditional Liverpuddlian bread & butter pudding style bake. Having said that, when I presented it to my mostly Liverpuddlian course mates they seemed bemused, so who knows really? Maybe it’s not as popular as it once was. I got the recipe from the National Trust website, and I have to say it is a particularly tasty dish, especially served warm with a dollop of ice cream!
