As an adult, I have made bread pudding a handful of times, and I usually don't even use a recipe. It only requires cutting up your older bread into small cubes, adding a couple of eggs, some cinnamon, nutmeg, sugar, and mix it all up. Then, place in a pan and bake until a fork comes out clean. I like to eat it with a scoop of vanilla ice cream, or in the morning with coffee.
These days, we save most of our older bread for the chickens, so I rarely get to use it in the kitchen. But yesterday, I had about 5 cups of bread to use, and the chickens already have a bag full. So, I went in search of an actual bread pudding recipe. I found this one.
It states that it is an old Amish recipe, and it made the best bread pudding I have yet eaten. I did not make the topping sauce, and it was still a very stellar product. If ever a recipe could make bread pudding finally appear on my list of favored foods, this one would.
I used raw honey instead of sugar, and I used 4 eggs from my hens because my eggs are smaller than store eggs. I baked in a 9x9 glass Pyrex dish for 30 minutes at 350.
I would have taken a photo, but we ate it too fast!
