warm, comfort food

it's cold and snowy in the midwest...
and honestly, i need some old fashioned, warm this body up, comfort food. ok, dessert!

so i made bread pudding...this recipe...
and, i have to say, i think it soothed my ills.

i doubled the recipe..honestly, we'll eat a 9x13 at dessert! this is hubs fav!
i modified a few things to make it ours...and i just don't like following the rules too strictly!

first...we don't like so much of a cinnamon taste, so i cut sprinkled the top with cinnamon and used about 1/2 of what the recipe called for.
second...i used more vanilla than what the recipe called for...about half again...since we love that vanilla flavor.
third...we love raisons, so piled them in. that way can go with "there's fruit in it" when i want seconds!

...and it was delish!!! and the house...boy does it smell yummy!!


  1. Boy, does this look yummy...i love bread pudding!

  2. Your bread pudding looks fabulous! Growing up in Indiana, my dad used to make a big pan of this in the winter. We would eat it warm just out of the oven with milk over it and a sprinkle of sugar. Thanks for the "warm" memory.
