Very few things are more old fashioned than bread pudding. The reason I think bread pudding is old fashioned is because the first time I ever had it was with my grandmother and back then I always thought it was something that old people ate, since my mom never made it.
My grandmother made it on Sundays in the usual way with eggs and cream and all but she did something different, she grated cheddar cheese on top that got all melty and delicious mixed with the sweetness of the bread pudding. I didnt make it that way this time.
I make this often, well if two to three times a year is often and it always comes out great. It is after all french toast in a bowl and probably easier to make, even though this did get a little too brown. I put a scoop of some nice rich vanilla ice cream and drizzle a little maple syrup over the whole thing and give it to the kid, he loves it.
