This is by far the easiest and most delicious bread pudding I have ever encountered. People swoon at the first bite and beg me for the recipe.
The quality of your ingredients is crucial to the success of this recipe. Be sure to use a good, bakery-quality Challah bread, and do not make low-fat substitutions for the milk and cream.
If you cannot find Challah, substitute it with another slightly-sweet egg bread, like Hawaiian bread. Use only homemade or bakery bread.
