  • Slow Cooker Bread and Butter Pudding for Under $5!

Slow Cooker Bread and Butter Pudding is always a crowd pleaser – loved by young and old. If you have never tried it, now is the time to give it a red hot go!

This recipe is particularly wonderful because not only is it minimal effort (like many slow cooker dishes), it also costs just $5 for the entire dessert!

This makes it ideal for weeks when the budget is tight, or when you’re trying to save!

For the price estimates here we’ve used a large national supermarket, but it’s possible (and highly encouraged) for you to look around at your local farmers market, local butcher or at discount grocers. You’re likely to find many of these ingredients even cheaper there!
