Bread pudding

Whether your preference is with custard or with cream, this bread pudding has it all – beautiful crisp edges, a soft custardy middle and it even uses up the leftover bread in the house. It only takes 10 minutes to prep, and you can leave it in the oven to bake while dinner's being served.
