Recipe by Denise in da Kitchen
I love my bread machine! It's great to come home from work on a cold winter day and smell fresh bread baking. Unfortunately since there are no preservatives in fresh baked bread, I was always throwing out stale bread to the birds. This recipe is a great way to use all that stale bread and it is definately NOT for the birds!

This is fine bread pudding. It was very easy to make and only uses ingredients I usually have on hand. I'd like to give 4 and a half points. The reason that I am not saying 5 points is that it lacks richness - such as can be found in butter or cream. I think that with the addition of only a tablespoon or less of butter, this pudding would be greatly improved. I also think it would be possible to reduce the sugar a little at the same time. Overall, a nice recipe with a lot of potential. Thank you very much for sharing this recipe with us.
