Nancy's Easy Custardy Bread Pudding

This has been in the family for years. It has a constant ratio of the main ingredients: always 1/2 to 3/4 cup sugar (your taste), always 1 tsp vanilla, always 1 egg for every piece of bread, always 1/2 cup milk for every egg. I use about 6 pieces of bread, 6 eggs and 3 cups milk every time. It's so simple, it's laughable. :) Photo to follow soon!
