Bread Pudding with Rum & Raisins

A real classic in the Dutch Kitchen; bread pudding! Bread pudding was, and still is, a great way to make something delicious with older bread. However you can also use fresh bread like brioche bread, sugar bread or regular white bread for this recipe! This dish is on its best when the top of the pudding is crispy and the bottom is more pudding like. Delicious served warm with syrup and a good scoop of vanilla ice cream. Enjoy!
