    I’ve made this twice now. The first time I followed the recipe exactly and it turned out pretty good; better than I imagined by reading the recipe. But I like a bit more custard in my bread puddings – I guess that’s just what I grew up with so that’s what I think a bread pudding should be like. As a result, the second time I made it, I added 3/4 cup of milk to the egg mixture (and just a few grates of fresh nutmeg). Turned out exactly what I had hoped for… Thank you Saffron!
