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.

This was wonderful the way it was, but may try a vanilla sauce over it next time as this is one I will be making again! Thanks for posting!

An excellent bread pudding!If making for company or a crowd I add a can of sliced peaches and before placing in the oven I pour on a can of sweetened condensed milk.I have also sprinkled over the milk some chopped pecans or walnuts.All of this makes it a little fancier.But,for just us I make it as you have written it and it is truly good!Thank you for posting rowen!
