Classic Bread Pudding with Vanilla Custard Sauce Recipe

I get many emails from my viewers to share easy puddings and desert ideas..This is one recipe which i made recently and it is addictive..It needs a handful of ingredients which u must be already having on hand..The taste is just fantastic..

I have already shared a baked eggless bread pudding recipe in this blog. This one is a classic bread pudding recipe made with eggs and it is the ultimate comfort food on a cold day. Love it on its own or with some custard sauce on the side.

I made this simple custard sauce using custard powder and milk. I will soon share a traditional custard sauce recipe using eggs soon..
