Recipe by mandabears
This is a comfort food recipe from The Jewish Exponent 10/11/12. I love plums and I love bread pudding so together this was a culinary hit. I made it with Italian Plums, but it can be prepared with well drained canned plums. I made it with soy milk but don't tell DH.
- nonstick cooking spray
- 8 cups challah, dry, crusts removed and cut into 1/4-1/2 inch cubes (about 8 thick slices)

- 1 quart milk
- 5 eggs, beaten
- 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
- 1⁄2 cup sugar
- 1⁄2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
