What do you do with a loaf of bread that needs to be used, a stack of eggs that have just mass produced from the chicken coop, and...well, some much taste sweetness from the pantry?! You make bread pudding! Although this recipe isn't gluten-free, you certainly can substitute the bread for such. I plan on getting a loaf or making my own. Earth Fare is a grocer in a nearby town that I get my gluten-free bread and buns from since I have a very sensitive allergy. However, let's move on...this was fantastic according to my family...a warm dessert for a late chilly night...
A dessert that I will make again very soon...
no nuts, no added butter...
Full of raisins too...
