Before I made this recipe, I didn't know if even liked bread pudding, so it was an experiment. I had almost a whole loaf of day-old Italian bread that was getting pretty stale. I didn't want to waste it so I found this recipe. I used the exact ingredients and amounts (including all 4 eggs) with two exceptions. First, I used a heaping half cup of sugar, not 3/4 cup to cut it down just a smidgen. I also used about 2/3 of a loaf of Italian bread. I cut it into thick, 1 inch slices, then into 1x1 cubes. I used golden raisins and also threw in a small handful of craisins. Beause of the extra bread, I had to let it soak in the egg/milk mixture for a few minutes and push it all down well with a fork to get all of the bread saturated. It turned out great - not soggy, wet or eggy. I prefer it warm, so I've been reheating the leftovers in the microwave. Yum!
