Custard Bread Pudding Recipe

Served warm and drizzled with sauce, this dessert has down-home appeal, says Barbara Little of Bedford, Indiana. "It's a soft custard-like bread pudding."

  • 2 eggs
  • 2 cups milk

"I added a teaspoon of vanilla, and substituted cinnamon raisin bread for the regular bread, then reduced the raisins and left out the cinnamon. Everyone liked it. Didn't really taste much like custard though...just a pretty good bread pudding."
