Thank You so much! This recipe is a life saver lol. I have been dying to make bread pudding, but since my oven is not functioning haven't been able to.

Made this with French bread and Craisins. It is so easy and so totally yummy. My family has requested it so often that I have probably made it 5 times in the last few weeks!
