      That is so funny! One of the next two articles I was going to write up was on the different ways of using leftover bread, and bread pudding was going to be one of them (If I do that article, would you mind if I add a link to this recipe? If not, no problem)!

      Wow, this recipe looks spectacular! It doesn't use much sugar, which is what I often look for when I search for recipes. And the dried fruit adds a tasty and healthy kick to it. Well done!

      I am sharing this!
