FREDA's notes for this recipe:
In memory of Our Grandma Alvina Brown, She Loved her Bread Pudding.
This is a Simple "Old" Recipe, I dug out of my recipes just his morning. I just wanted Old timey Bread pudding. This is very Good, and Very Easy to make. Plus You have the Memories of the past.
Those, "on the Farm Days" when You made Do with what You had on Hand. Compliments of Granny Brown.

I use Stale bread.
You can add a little Cinnamon if You desire.
We eat this warm with Milk or Cream over top or even Whip cream.
You can also eat this warm with a sprinkleing of Pdr Sugar, or a simple Vanilla or Lemon Sauce over the top.
It's Sooo Good. Hope You'll try and enjoy as much as we do.

NOTE: You can make a batch to serve 4 or 8 servings.
Make it Your Way...
