Love making this on a crisp fall day. Makes the house smell so good. I also server it with warm apples.

This recipe is not good. 1/2 cup of milk is not enough. Too dry. I added another 1/2 cup. Too dry. Added 1 cup and is finally moist but not too tasty.

This recipe tries too hard to be "healthy". Bread pudding should be made from white or brown bread, and quite a lot of (whole) milk is needed to make a generous custard. Egg whites are out of place here: only whole eggs will do. The bread should not be toasted -- I can't see the reason why, as the end result should be tender and custardy on the inside and crusty on top. This is not a recipe I would try: no ways can 1/2 cup milk work, neither can 2 egg whites or wholewheat bread. The ingredients are skew, somehow.
