I'm not puddiing (get it)? todays' bread puddings down, fine and dandy if that's what you like. This is my momma's recipe, no sauces or glazes. No brioche or baguettes. Just plain stale bread she turned into heaven with raisins, apples, sugar and spices. I like the corner pieces, they have some crunch to em', you will too.
