This recipe comes out of an old recipe flier of my mom's. I can see the old flier in my head and I believe it was an aluminum foil contest, maybe reynold's wrap...Anyway, I always loved this recipe and stumbled upon it tonight in an old recipe box. This bread pudding has the best custard filling and is just to die for, I think it is the best I have ever had. Enjoy
