Here is the recipe.
Brenda's Bread Pudding
4 Cup milk
1/4 cup melted butter
1 Tablespoon Vanilla
2 Cups sugar
12 slices of bread, torn into pieces
1/3 Cup sugar
1/2 pint Whipping Cream
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Mix the first 6 ingredients in a large bowl and allow to soak for 10 minutes. Poar into a 2 qt (not sure about size but this sounds about right) buttered baking dish and bake at 350 F for 1 hour. Remove from oven and sprinkle 1/3 cup sugar all over the top of hot pudding and pour whipping cream over the sugar. Return to oven and bake at 425 degrees F until top becomes golden brown.
The changes I made were to add raisins and decrease the sugar to 1 cup since raisins are so sweet. And instead of whipping cream, I used evaporated skim milk because my tummy just can not handle a lot of fat. It is so yummy! Give it a try!
So other than all of us trying to stay warm in the cold weather. That is what we have been up to. One last thing I would ask of you. Please pray for us as tomorrow we have a home going for a family member. His name was Lester "Babe" Bland age 93. He was a precious sweet man, always smiling despite having to go to the care home and having to start using a wheelchair. When ever we visited Grams at the care home and saw Babe, he had that smile going! I really cared for him! He has 3 children, Gaylen, Randy and Carla. His wife Minnie left us in 1994 or 1995 not for sure which so they are together again. When we went to see Babe at the funeral home, he still had that sweet, precious smile on his face. My prayer for all of you is this. Should you have a home going, may you be able to smile because you know you are going to Heaven to meet the Savior and your loved ones who are there. That is my earnest desire for you all. God bless you until next time!
