This was a total success story for me. I love bread pudding and now I can have it 12 minutes without turning the oven on. The texture was just like the traditional oven baked recipe my mother has always made so this gets 10/10 from my whole family.

The 2 cups of milk drowned all the other ingredients. Result was gummy, gooey bread with no substance. Very disappointed with how this recipe turned out. Am going to bake it in the oven to see if it can be dried out and become edible. Would hate to waste all the ingredients!
