Umm, toasting the bread is what i didn’t think of doing. Just yesterday i brought home some portugese sweet bread and half and half to put into the bread pudding. Since the only sweet bread they had were in buns that was my only choice, anyway it is sweet bread.
Sure, that is not a problem. As i mentioned earlier I had to teach myself how to make bread since i was brought up eating rice 24/7. As i was saying i am from the Pacific Northwest but i lived most of my life on the main island of Oahu there I cannot recall my parents purchasing bread, it was always rice. After language school my friends and I were always famished so we stopped at the local bakery and endulged ourselves in the best bread pudding we could imagine. A few year’s ago i visited my home town and the bread pudding was just as delicious as they were back then.
