Peach Bread Pudding

Have you ever had bread pudding?

I was going to make a sandwich with the bread that my dad picked up from the Farmer's Market a week (or so) ago.  I pulled out the bread and it was pretty dry and hard... and on the verge of molding.  Not sandwich material.  I didn't want to waste it, though, and I remembered that bread pudding uses day (or so) old bread.

I never had bread pudding before.  I'd seen a bunch of recipes for it before, but it never looked appealing, so I never wanted to try it.  I found a pretty basic recipe and decided to try it.

Since I'd never made it before, I didn't even know what to expect.  I wasn't sure what the texture or taste or anything was going to taste like.  It has a kind of crunchy top and a custardy base.  Although I have nothing to compare it to, I thought it turned out pretty yummy!

The recipe is easy! Give it a try! :)
