Bread Pudding

Every country has its own version of Bread Pudding. The best thing about this dessert is that, it is made of a day-old bread or stale bread. It’s one of the desserts that can be made every day at home.

The main ingredient of a Bread Pudding is, of course, bread. The type of bread that is used is not specified, but most people use day-old white bread. When I was searching for this recipe, I found out that some use “Mamon,” a sweet sponge cake from the Philippines. Bakeries back home (Philippines) use different kinds of old bread to make bread pudding. It’s a good way to eliminate wasted food.   I remember, when I was little, my Papa told me that the bread pudding I was eating was old, I disagreed and said, “No, it’s new!” (What I meant was, I just bought it from the bakery – thus, it’s new!) But now I know what he meant!
