bread pudding

This is a pudding recipe that tests almost like French toast but with more flavor and less flavor. It’s a great breakfast to please the crowd on a busy morning. The instructions are very simple, you just need to mix everything together and cook until ready. Children love this recipe and they can help you stirring the mixture. The bread will poof up in the oven, which is always fun to watch.

This pudding is nice and moist as-is but you can use any topping you like. My personal favorites are maple syrup and honey. Any jam would be perfect here. You can also add frozen bananas and blueberries.

This is a delicious bread pudding that is baked in individual portions so you don't have to stand in the kitchen turning the toasts on the griddle. You get more time for yourself or your family while this pudding is cooking in the oven. Top the pudding with bacon and berries. Everything would be yummy on this delicious and easy pudding.
