Cheats Festive Brioche Bread and Butter Pudding

I’ve always made a quick and easy Cheats Brioche Bread and Butter Pudding but over recent years I’ve also made a festive version that I thought I’d share with you today – you can’t beat a festive dessert in the run up to Christmas. Full of cranberry and orange flavours it’s great for Christmas and has just a lovely festive kick to it that the whole family really enjoy.
