Cinnamon-Raisin Bread Pudding with Honey Cream
My boyfriend loves bread pudding, but it's hard to find a place that serves it. So, I put together this recipe and now we can enjoy this tasty delight whenever we like. It makes an excellent addition to an Easter spread. —Diane Wright, Stacy, Minnesota
