Paula Deen The Best Bread Pudding...I'm not a Bread Pudding fan, but I made this for my dad and ad to try it. It IS pretty good!. 2 cups of granulated sugar was definitely too much. Next time I'll use 1, maybe 1 1/2 cups. I added 3 small boxes of raisins to mine, and for the sauce, I added 1/4 cup Brandy.
