This old-fashioned dessert tastes like the comforting long-cooked pudding Grandma used to make, but it really is quick and easy to prepare. The flavor is wonderful. We have it often because my whole family enjoys it. You can make it sugar-free, if you'd like, by using sugar-free pudding mix.
My mother, who didn't own a cookbook, created this recipe. She fussed over ingredients until she was satisfied with the results. With nine children to feed on a limited budget, she came up with many variations of the same dish. This dessert was a special treat.

Traditional bread pudding gets a new twist in this deliciously different dessert from Sharon Paddock of Wauchula, Florida. "With both chocolate chips and peanut butter, this bread pudding does not taste light," she assures. "And it's so comforting!"
