I do not know where this recipe comes from, but this is my favorite bread pudding recipe.
You can use any kind of bread. I even used up some left over muffins that made this dish, the best I ever ate. Even my husband raised his eyebrows and had a big smile.
My grandmother and mom made bread pudding all the time and I just love bread pudding.

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Oven: preheat 350 degrees
Beat butter and sugar until blended.
Add eggs and blend well.
Blend in milk, vanilla and spices. Mixture will look grainy.
2
Lightly grease with butter a 2 quart baking dish.
Put in bread cubes and fruit.
Pour the milk mixture over bread.
Lightly stir and let set 10 minutes. Stirring if needed.
3
Cover and bake, 40 minutes.
Uncover and bake for 10 minutes until top is lightly browned and pudding is set.

Remove from oven.
Pour over top the maple syrup if selected.

I have not used the maple syrup topping or the fruit.
I have used leftover muffins. Slice like a loafs of bread and layer into baking dish. Kind of like how you would put on a dish to serve. Pour liquid over muffins and let set for 10 minutes..I did not stir.
