My first time trying to make bread pudding and it was so easy to make, that I will be making it often. I added finely chopped walnuts and craisins and they were such good additions!

Easy and excellent. This is a simple recipe that makes a great tasting bread pudding. I added some cinnamon and nutmeg to spice it up just a bit. Thanks for the recipe.
