Custard lovers will love this! French toast lovers will love this! But if you don't fall into that category or if you must have that bread pudding that grandma made or you had on that trip to Ireland in '75 you will scratch your head and wonder what all of us are raving on about. I love the eggy custard side and the crunch topping of sweet bread. If you look up WikiCookbook, this exact recipe is there. So, naysayers, post your own recipe of lumpy, dry bread-pudding that drops like a brick. You won't find that here. That said, you will also have a raisin/no raisin camp. I do not spoil my sweet breakfast with raisins, unless they are soaked in rum and put on with a sauce. I have made this recipe 4 times since finding it last month and the kids come out of the woodwork when the aroma hits. I DO ADD NUTMEG! Like eggnog! Once I was rushed and forgot the sugar. That first bite hit me and I laughed and drizzled on REAL maple syrup. That pan was gobbled up in seconds. I use 2% milkfat milk and find no loss in texture. One time I did not have enough milk and used half 'n' half for the remainder and found no difference, so stick with the less caloric version, it is fantastic.
