World record attempt at Tipton library
Published on 24th September 2012
A bakery firm is this week attempting to break the world record for the biggest bread and butter pudding – and visitors to Tipton Library can tuck into the result.
Warburtons plans to make the British classic at its base in Wednesbury as part of Macmillan's World's Biggest Coffee Morning fundraising drive.
It will transport the finished pud to the library around 10.30am on Friday, September 28, and customers can buy a slice to raise money for the cancer charity.
Evidence will be sent off for verification for what is hoped will be a new Guinness World Record.
Bread and butter pudding is made of stale slices of bread, milk, butter and raisins.
The current world record stands at 400lbs and includes over 150 loaves of bread.
Library manager Robert Hazel said: "What could be better than tucking into bread and butter pudding while raising money for charity.
"Everyone is welcome so come along and share in what we hope will be a piece of history."
The library forged a link with Warburtons last year when one of the baker's employees helped to judge a bread pudding competition as part of a local history day for Black Country food.
