Fruit and Nut Bread Pudding

Tammy Raynes


Growing up our family was consider "poor" although we never felt like we were. But there were some things that we just didn't have on our table like most people did. One of those was what we called "fancy" desserts.

But Mom would make her special dessert that she called Sweet Bread Delight. I found out later that it was just plain old "Bread Pudding". But to us kids, we thought we were really special when she made it.

Mom is passed on now and I found her recipe for "Sweet Bread Delight". I've tweak it to fit my family. Hope you enjoy it as much as we do.
