Recipe by Boomette

I didn't try it but I guess it's delicious. I don't remember where I took it. For the servings and time to make, I had to guess cause it was not written on my page.

DELICIOUS and sweet! I liked the addition of the almond extract ~ I used nine slices of 12-grain bread with all crusts removed. The bread pudding baked in a 13 x 9 Pyrex dish, on top of another pan in case of overflow, at 300F for 1 hour 30 minutes, and the meringue baked at 325F for 14 minutes! Easily serves 12 ~ will slice much neater when cold!! Tagged Boomette in the Mardi Gras Photo Tag, February 2012.
