Directions:
Years ago, people could not afford to throw anything away. If they had a lot of leftover old bread (the bread that was made with flour, not cornmeal), they would crumble and save it. The whole message behind bread pudding is that people could not afford to waste or throw away food, so they re-cycled it. With bread pudding, they used the stale bread to make this delicious dessert.

Mix all the above ingredients. Place in 350 degree oven. Bake for 45 minutes, or until the center is firm to the touch. Can be served hot or cold.
