This Classic Bread Pudding is an easy dessert using a stale bread soaked in a milky egg mixture.
I used to make it using my white sandwich bread, crust removed then cubed, but today I made this Classic Bread Pudding with multi grain bread, cut the slice into half length wise.
Also baked this pudding in my 9 x 11 in baking pan instead of the heavy glass dish. It does not matter what utensil you choose, it still turns out great. The advantage of using a glass dish is that it can go from oven straight to dining table.
It can be customize to your liking by adding cinnamon, nutmeg or lemon zest. If you are a chocolate lover, add a cup of chopped bittersweet chocolate or add in fruits like banana (2), blueberry, strawberry, raspberry (2 cup) or dried fruit (1 cup) just before baking.
This simple Classic Bread Pudding came out beautiful and and taste exactly the same I enjoyed as a child.
