  • Bread pudding has come a long way, baby! Once eaten by the poor in early nineteenth century England to make use of stale bread, bread pudding is now considered comfort food extraordinaire.
  • You can cut or tear the bread into 1/2-inch pieces for this recipe. You'll need about 8 slices of bread to make the 6 cups of bread cubes needed.
