Bread Pudding!

I have made bread pudding many times and it was always well received..When my children had friends over and I didn't know what to make the old reliable bread pudding would come again to life..Lots of times I added fruit to it. Thinly sliced apples for sure was a favorite and raisins also can be added  ..Today I combined my recipe with another and added some pecan pieces to put on top ..Here is the recipe:

3 cups bread cubes
1/2 to 1 cup sugar( depends on how sweet you want it to be.)
4 eggs
2 cups milk(I used skim)( sometimes I use a little half and half mixed with the skim milk)
2 tablespoons butter melted
2 tsp. pure vanilla

 Whisk milk, eggs, sugar, vanilla. Add melted butter.  To blend together better, I put in electric mixer and  mixed on low speed.  Pour over bread cubes and set for 10 minutes so bread can soak up some of the milk.

Slightly grease a baking dish with butter.(I used oval dish)but you can use 13 x9 inch baking dish. Sprinkle a little cinnamon on top.. Bake 350 until set, about 35 to 40 minutes..Check with knife in center..If it comes out clean it is ready to serve.  Serve warm. 

Note:  I topped mine with pecan mixture before putting in oven.. 
1/4 cup butter melted, 1/2 brown sugar and 1/2 cup pecan pieces..Crumble and top  bread pudding and bake. This topping makes for a better brunch than breakfast..because it is a little rich in taste.

Taste update:  It was a huge success!!!!!!!!!!!!
