As much as I like raisins, I seldom buy raisin bread (although I've made it from time to time!) so I used slices of a nutty, whole grain bread along with a handful of dark raisins, then followed the recipe from there, for a great tasting bread pudding! Great flavor from the toasted pecans & the Granny Smiths, & here's another recipe to include in my bread pudding file! Thanks for sharing it! [Tagged & made in Please Review My Recipe]
It wasn't very sweet which my dd and dh liked better then our normal treats. I don't care for nutmeg and wished I had left it out, even though it was a small amount. I didn't plan my time very well so I ended up cooking this in the oven at 350 for 55 minutes. I think it would be better in the crockpot and will make that it that way next time.
