Rum Raisin Bread Pudding

Rum Raisin Bread Pudding - soak day old bread cubes in a flavorful custard before baking up into this delicious breakfast, brunch or dessert

My love of all things bread pudding comes from my mom. And my mom's love comes from her mom. You can say it's in our DNA and we didn't really have a choice. My grandmother a"h, on occasion, would even go so far as to eat a piece of fresh, crusty, Italian bread for dessert. So this Rum Raisin Bread Pudding, a "slight" upgrade on a simple slice of bread to end the meal, is for my mom (and grandmom).

Don't have day-old bread? Place bread cubes on a baking sheet in the oven at 350 degrees F for 5 minutes to dry out.
