My mom taught me to cook a lot of great things as I was growing up and she passed on a lot of great recipes. One recipe I never got from her was her bread pudding, I just can't get it right. Does anyone have suggestions based on this description?
The bread pudding was very dense, almost like a pound cake density, but very moist. It was sweet but not overly so, lots of cinnamon and nutmeg. She'd make it in a 9x13 pan, I remember her taking it out of the oven and rubbing an entire stick of butter over the top and letting it melt down into the pudding. :-) She'd let it cool just a bit then serve it up it big pieces. Heaven on a plate.
My mom passed away in '92. I've tried for almost 20 years to recreate this and can't get it right. Everyone in my family remembers this bread pudding and I'd love to make it at Christmas. Any help is appreciated.
