    Kittencalskitchen's Note:

    This is an ultra rich version on the classic English dessert. Make certain to use day-old bread for this. I used dark raisins and soaked them in a bit of cognac for this recipe, which really kicked the taste way! Although the recipe does not say to add in cinnamon, I sprinkled some on top of the bread layers, but this is only optional.

    • 8 large egg yolks
    • 1 cup sugar (or to taste)
    • 1/4 cup butter, softened (no subs)

      This does sound delicious, But, it is NOT an English Style Bread Pudding. It is in fact a Bread and Butter Pudding. Bread pudding - the English variety has no custard, is more like a spiced cake than a dessert, you cut it in slices, very dense. Equally delicious but oh, so different.
