The Best Bread Pudding

This recipe is one that I make every New Years and is enjoyed by everyone including young children. It can be served with a dollop of whipped cream on top or a scoop of vanilla ice cream on the side. This is a recipe that you will want add to your recipe box for sure.

1 1/4 cups raisins

1 1/2 cups sugar

How to make The Bread Pudding

      No, the bread pudding flavor alone will by not adding the raisins be a problem at all. Go for it!

      No I haven't, but that is so smart, There is nothing worst than a stale cinnamon role or donut. Now I know what to do with them. Thanks for the tips. Anything you can add to a Hub is always a plus as far as I'm concerned.

      I will have to do this pudding soon. Sounds great. Have you ever tried using stale cinnamon rolls instead of bread, or even stale doughnuts for that matter? Works great.

      Thanx laringo

      C-it's me!

      Moonlake, I wasn't a fan of bread pudding when I was a little girl, but now, making this one, I devour it. Yes, you should give it a try. Bon Appetit!

      I'll have to make it for my husband. He loves bread pudding and I do make it for him. I don't like it I don't know why it's just one of those things I don't like.

      When I make I'll have to taste some maybe your bread pudding will change my mind.

      BKCreative, what's so good about apples is that if you want your bread pudding with a little tartness, then use tart apples or sweeter apples if you just want all that sweet goodness, use a sweeter apple. Any way, it's will be delicious.

      This does sound good. Bread pudding is one of my favorite desserts but my efforts in the past to make have not been good! Maybe I can finally make good bread pudding with this recipe. Thanks. ;-)
