Bread Pudding Tips like this one are included!
THE DENSENESS of the
pudding is determined by the proportion of bread to liquid. For a
more 'custardy' dish, use less bread or increase liquid. Also,
different types of bread absorb varying amounts of liquid, so yo may
need to adjust liquid amounts, depending on the bread type.
Tips for Bread Pudding are
at the end of the cookbook.
