    1. JenG, I am 73 and I remember our neighbor lady made it for our family when I was a young girl in Illinois. I seldom see this anywhere, like at a buffet, but I like it a lot. The recipe is simple. I don't buy white bread, I used by New York Rye. I don't think that would make a good bread pudding with NY rye? I like bread pudding and rice pudding. My mom made the best custard like rice pudding. No one makes it like she did.
