Recipe by Lainey39

I always like to have bread pudding as a dessert when dining out, but I've never made this one. This one I had to try, though, and it's wonderful. It's a recipe by Paula Deen and it was published in a recent issue of Ladies Home Journal. Plan ahead - it should refrigerate for at least 1 hour or overnight. I have included the 1 hour chilling time in the preparation time.
