Here is bread pudding recipe, from my mom’s kitchen, is extremely unbelievable.
It was copied and passed on by grandmothers, great-aunts, beloved neighbor ladies and those whose home cooking reaches the very soul of the family. This is the bread pudding people get dreamy-eyed over.

This bread pudding is very easy to prepare so it becomes my family’s number one comfort food; relish every bite. It is truly the soul pleasing treat that most people want.
