mason jar bread pudding

1 serving — 30 minutes

Growing up bread pudding was my favourite dessert. After the holidays, my aunt would give my mom a bag of crusts, left over from the sandwiches she'd make for xmas. She used these to make bread pudding.

I asked my mom for her recipe, because I wanted to learn. She smiled, "Watch me do it". My mom cooks by feel, always has. She never writes anything down. I stood by her as she made it, taking notes of the approximate quantities and various steps.

My mom comes from a big family of 7 girls, she grew up cooking for the family. When cooking for my sisters & I, she'd always prepare a basin-load of food. Her bread pudding recipe is no different. My dad has no trouble going through all of it.

Devine & I are a good eaters, but there's no way we can eat that much dessert, so I reduced and reduced, until it fit a wide-mouth 1/4 l(1 cup) mason jar.

If ever you have some leftover crusts try and make this, it's easy, delicious and comforting.
