Our Family favourite.
Although the 24-year-old account manager for Ubiguity PR can count the number of meals she is able to cook on one hand, she insists her bread and butter pudding is something special.
She says: "It all started after reading Delia Smith's How To Cookbook.
"I looked at the main courses and got rather scared so skipped straight to the desserts and that's when I found what would soon become my signature dish!"
Nicola shocked family and friends by making the pudding unassisted when she cooked it for the first time.
"They couldn't believe that I had made it and it was delicious.
"The great thing is it is cheap, very tasty and can be served hot or cold."
