Bread pudding is a good comfort-food style dessert, and a great way to use up leftover slices or stale bread. Some recipes call for the custard to be cooked before adding to the bread, and some simply call for the eggs and milk to be whisked together before adding to the bread.

This recipe uses eggs and sugar, and mixed with scaled milk that is cooled to lukewarm. Use cinnamon if desired for added flavor, or any combination of spices.

Regrettably, there is no "yummy" attribute for our hubs. You'll have to settle for simply "voted up". Bookmarked for later reference - thanks for sharing your recipe.

Sure thing! By the way, I like your idea of a 'yummy' attribute for hubs.
