This special bread pudding is a dish I learned to make while working in the small German town of Fredericksburg, Tx. It is so simple to make and definitely falls into the category of comfort food! I used to make this for my sister when she needed comforting --she loved it so much. She was just diagnosed with cancer so I named this after her.
