Oh, this is DH's favorite dessert of all time. I made this for him and he was in seventh heaven. I had a French bread that needed to be used up and it was perfect for this dish. I also make a vanilla sauce to serve on top of this, so good. Thank you for sharing with us your recipe, its a winner in our house!

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.
