The second question people ask when I serve them this pie is, "What's your recipe?" It comes right after their first question: "May I have another slice?" I like sewing and quilting, gardening…and canning the surplus! —Lauretha Rowe, Scranton, Kansas

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!
