I absolutely loved this recipe! My mom used to make it for my sister and I when we were younger and now I'm making it for me and my husband. We prefer the "thicker" consistency bread puddings because we put a few scoops of ice cream on top. I can't wait to try different flavors. I wan't to try adding sliced almonds and cranberries to this (instead of raisins) and adding almond extract in place of some vanilla. Even a savory one sounds great! Add ingredients that you would normally make a quiche with, and, voila! Getting more hungry by the second!
