Let's make a yummy dessert, I love Bread Pudding mainly because I love the cinnamon and hot dessert...here is an easy recipe to make some scrumptious pudding...

Bread Pudding Recipe

Bread pudding is a dessert that was born of necessity long ago. It was a recipe cooked up by thrifty homemakers to use every bit of leftovers in interesting ways to feed their families. This bread pudding, from an old Amish cookbook, is absolutely incredible.
It is definitely a comfort food, and can be made richer with cinnamon sauce or caramel sauce. You can also substitute berries in place of the raisins for a delicious change of pace. It is a fairly basic bread pudding recipe, but it is truly the soul satisfying treat that most people crave. Nothing beats warm bread pudding on a cold or rainy night.
What do people that love bread pudding also tend to reach for as a treat? Check out our Monkey Bread Recipe for a sweeter, cinnamon-laden delight, or Banana Pudding for a luscious, creamy southern favorite. If you're truly throwing those calorie counts out the window (and we all need to once in a while!), take a look at the cheesecake recipes that will have you convinced that each bite is a velvety, decadent morsel of pure joy.

I'm a fan of bread pudding. I'm never sure about the ideal consistency. This sounds like a good recipe.
