I have been searching for a bread pudding that my mother made when I was a child and I thought this was it. It wasn't what I had remembered but it was good. I would definitely cut down on the nutmeg and cinnamon, it was alittle overpowering for my family.

I've made this 2 times now. The first time I used cubed hard rolls and almost came back to give it a 1-2 star rating. Hard rolls were a bad idea! It tasted like bland, dry french toast. But since the directions just said "bread", I figured any kind was OK. I had a feeling I used the wrong bread so I tried it again before rating. Second time I used plain white bread, and it came out great. I sprayed that dish instead of using butter. I sprinkled a little ground chocolate on the top with the raisins, and it was really good like that. My 6 year old son LOVES this! I'm also making it for my dad on Saturday. I'm very happy with it, but I think the directions should be more clear on the type of bread to use. Thanks for this recipe!
