Bread Pudding

"My niece in South Carolina sent me this recipe for bread pudding. It was the first time I ever had it. After trying it for the first time, I did make a few adjustments to cater to my taste, although the orginal recipe was quite good. I wanted it to be a bit sweeter so increased the sugar from just under a 1/2 cup to just over 3/4 cup. I also added the double strength vanilla. This pudding can be eaten warm or chilled...topped with pouring cream if desired."

    I'll never throw away old bread again! Didn't have raisins, so I added a shredded apple instead. I also melted the butter and whisked it with the other ingredients - figured it's going the same place anyway. Easy to prepare and utterly delicious - warm or cold!

    This is now a family favorite! I didn't have any cinnomon or vanilla so I substituted with a pinch of nutmeg, and used a loaf of failed homemade bread. (It didn't turn out for sandwich slices) but it made a great pudding! Thanks for sharing!

    Love it! Love it! Love it! This was so easy to prepare, and so yummy!! I followed your instructions exactly, and didn't change a thing. A real nice change from the rice pudding recipe that I usually make. This was a hit! Thanks, Sandylee!
