My dad's mother (nick named Pidge) tweaked bread pudding until she got this recipe the way she wanted it. She never wrote out recipes. She had all her recipes in her head. One of my Aunts finally got this recipe written out because the whole family wanted to make it. This is one of my dad's favorite sweets. He makes it every year for New Year's Eve. It is like a custard bread. It maybe the only bread pudding that you can eat with your hands. :)
