    Garden Gate Kate's Note:

    This rich bread pudding has a delicious caramelized topping. I prefer to use fresh bread instead of the usual dry, stale bread to make it moister.

      Absolutely delicious bread pudding. Only made one change and that was to use cranberry nut bread vs. the raisens. Came out perfectly -- crusty on the top and moist and delicious inside. Will definitely keep this recipe handy for future occasions. Made for Spring PAC, April, 2013.
