Bread Pudding in the Microwave

READY IN: 21mins
Recipe by Lennie

I have no idea where I got this recipe, but it is handwritten in a small book where I saved recipes back in the mid-80s. I haven't made this in ages, but I do recall I used to make it a lot. I think I will make it again today! :-) Ordinary sandwich bread works fine, or use a spiffier bread to make a spiffier pudding. Serve with a vanilla custard sauce, whipped cream, or even ice cream.

This is so good! I added a t of vanilla and a pinch of cinnamon to the milk after heating. Very quick and easy! Thanks Lennie, this is a good one!!
