Old Fashioned Bread Pudding

Top Review by syd11

This was my first time making bread pudding. I made several modifications based upon what I have heard others say they used. Modifications I made: decreased butter by 1 TB; decreased milk by 1/2 c; added 1/4 cup applesauce; added a handful of walnuts finely chopped with the food processor; added 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract; added some nutmeg and extra cinnamon; used brown sugar, jumbo red raisins, and double fiber bread. It was yummy.

  6. Put bread cubes and raisins in a 1-1/2 quart baking dish; pour in milk mixture. Stir gently to moisten the bread evenly.
