Did You Know?
Bread pudding made with a bread that's too soft can be very soft and almost mushy. Gently squeeze bread loaves and choose the one that has some resistance and doesn't feel like a marshmallow!
Substitution
You can serve the bread pudding with prepared strawberry topping instead of making the Strawberry Sauce.
