    Laura2of7's Note:

    This is the recipe I grew up with. It came from the 1950's "Picture Cook Book". My assembly is a bit different, though. I think it's easier. Also, you could use your microwave to heat the milk and melt the butter. Just be careful not to scramble your eggs in the hot milk. This can be served with any hard sauce, bourbon sauce or ice cream, but I like it with just a little half & half. My mom always poured milk on hers.

      One to two bites in and I realized this is the exact bread pudding my Grandmother made for years on out. I scooped some out while it was still warm, yet cool enough for the custard to set. Next time I have a day old baguette hanging out in the bread basket I'm whipping up this recipe to take a delightful trip down memory lane. Fantastic recipe. Wonderful flavor and so easy to pull together!
