Recipe|Grandma’s Bread Pudding

Never really understood the concept of using dry,stale bread pieces mixing them with wet ingredients only to bake them dry again but that’s the joy of good old bread pudding.. According to the Daily Gazette, food historians trace the history of bread pudding to the early 11th and 12th centuries, as frugal cooks looked for ways to use stale, leftover bread instead of letting it go to waste. In 13th century England, bread pudding was known as “poor man’s pudding,” as it was a popular dish with the lower classes. Others say that historically bread pudding was used to feed the sick because it was easy to digest. Either way, we have to admit that cooked correctly this is one of the greatest desserts ever created. Before you start please understand that the bread pudding you make may not look exactly like the photo attached and if you make these treats please do us a favor and  share your photos with our followers. As with any recipe have fun and enjoy!
