The idea for this lovely, moist cake came from Elena Wong on our production team. It’s best made with leftover whole potatoes, which you’ve mashed or, even better, riced once cold. If you’re intending to make it with leftover mash, make sure it doesn’t contain too much butter, milk, cream – or any flavourings such as mustard.
This is really a bread and butter pudding done with breadcrumbs instead of slices of bread, and it’s much easier to make. You can serve it, like rice pudding, with jam (very tart jams such as plum or raspberry are best) - or, best of all, with stewed/roasted rhubarb or plums.
