Princess Diana favourite desert was the perfect cross between bread pudding and crème brûlée made by her royal chef, Darren McGrady.
In Eating Royally: Recipes and Remembrances from the Palace Kitchen, the former royal cook recalled his time working for the royal family and creating their favourite meals.
McGrady, who served Queen Elizabeth II before becoming Princess Diana’s personal chef, said that Diana was mad for his bread and butter pudding recipe.
“This pudding was Princess Diana’s all-time favorite, so much so that she once had a royal reporter write that ‘Darren makes the best bread and butter pudding in the world," the chef wrote in an excerpt shared by Today.
“Well, I am not sure it is the best in the world — but it’s up there! The final texture is a cross between a bread pudding and a crème brûlée.”
Working for the royals between 1982 and 1993, the chef has spoken openly about the eating habits of the Queen, Prince Philip, the Queen Mother, William, Harry and more, most recently in an interview with Marie Clarie.
He said that once the Queen has finished the last of her food, no one in the family is allowed to eat one more bite, according to Stylist.

McGrady claims that Princess Diana loved taking Harry and William to McDonald’s – and they allegedly loved getting a free toy with a happy meal.
The chef said: "I remember the Princess came into the kitchen one day and said: 'Cancel lunch for the boys I'm taking them out, we're going to McDonald's'."
He went on: "The boys loved McDonald's, and going out to pizza, and having potato skins – sort of the American foods. They were royal princes but had children's palates."

The Queen does have a favourite dish, but prefers to keep it a secret to avoid having it served on every royal visit, one insider revealed.
The former Telegraph royal correspondent Gordon Rayner wrote: "As one of her staff told me, ‘If she said she had a favourite meal she would never get served anything else.’"
