Charles has become a fan of bread pudding. We have had it a couple times recently at restaurants. There are so many different kinds! I decided to try my hand at it, but first I had to make the bread with our handy dandy bread machine! I kept it simple and made regular white bread.
The first time we attempted the bread we were not paying attention to it and it needed more water. By the time we realized this it was too late to add any more. The bread came out looking pretty funny. Charles still ate the soft, white middle.
The second time I made it I was more vigilant and everything came out great!
