Raisin Date Bread Pudding

All my leftover bread ends (raisin bread is a favorite in this house) and buns go in the freezer. Then, when I've stashed away enough, I whip up a batch of this pudding. It's an all-occasion dish—I've made it for holidays, potlucks, picnics...for any occasion or no occasion! I've been making my bread pudding since I was a girl—the recipe originated with my great-aunt. My husband, who cash-crops with his father and brother, loves it. We're the parents of two children, a 2-year-old girl and a boy born just last year—on Christmas morning!
