    This recipe is excellent, even in my using whole wheat-whole grain. Thanks! I've waited 25-years for a good bread pudding recipe, and I finally found it.
    I've cooked/tasted this recipe!

      This also works well with a Pugliese or Ciabatta loaf from Trader Joes. You can find canned pumpkin and dried cranberries there too!
