My son loves pear crisp, but one night I was making bread pudding. He asked if I could make both. I compromised by combining two desserts into this one dish. It's absolutely fantastic!—Kurt Wait, Redwood City, California
"This delicious Southern treat boasts out-of-this-world flavor and eye appeal. You just may want to skip the main course and go straight to dessert. It’s a favorite for our summer celebrations.” Marilyn Haynes - Sylacauga, Alabama
I always make this bread pudding recipe for my dad on his birthday and holidays. He says it tastes exactly like the bread pudding with nutmeg he enjoyed as a child. —Donna Powell, Montgomery City, Missouri
THIS tried-and-true dessert was printed in a cookbook published by a local organization. I have made a few changes, and it has become one of our favorite desserts.
I like to eat mine warm with a dollop of whipped cream...but my husband eats his cold with a scoop of ice cream!

This recipe comes from my grandmother who raised me. Besides looking after my siblings and me, she worked the farm and ran another business on the side. How she did all that, I'll never know! She's a tremendous cook and the goodies from "Edith's Kitchen" are always welcomed and eagerly devoured - this bread pudding is one of the best!
I've been serving this simple but elegant dessert for many years, after a friend shared the recipe, I especially enjoy baking yummy desserts. I guess it's in the genes--my grandfather came over from Norway and started a bakery in a small Minnesota town.
