Bread Pudding

Introduction

Bread pudding is a dessert that was born of necessity long ago. It was a recipe cooked up by thrifty homemakers to use every bit of leftovers in interesting ways to feed their families. This bread pudding, from an old Amish cookbook, is absolutely incredible. It is definitely a comfort food, and can be made richer with cinnamon sauce or caramel sauce. You can also substitute berries in place of the raisins for a delicious change of pace. It is a fairly basic bread pudding recipe, but it is truly the soul satisfying treat that most people crave. Nothing beats warm bread pudding on a cold or rainy night. Bread pudding is a dessert that was born of necessity long ago.

    Um. The nutritional data is only for the eggs. No way all that bread, butter and sugar would be only 100-something calories! ;) - 8/12/10

  • Quite good! I added dried cranberries and walnuts. I liked it, but I think my boyfriend would have liked it if it was a bit thicker consistency. Maybe I didn't cook long enough. Thank you for the detailed directions, esp. regarding milk - very helpful!! - 12/6/08
