This is delicious as a dessert or a make ahead breakfast or brunch item. The pudding can easily sit overnight in the refrigerator before baking and tastes good cold too. I use any leftovers from my Oatmeal Molasses Bread for this recipe, but as long as the bread is not sliced sandwich bread, most breads will work. The dairy can be done in a variety of ways, depending on what you have on hand. I have even made this with 1% and it turns out fine, but not as creamy.
