Raisin Bread Pudding

My sister gave me the recipe for this delicious bread pudding that's dotted with raisins. It's a big hit with everyone who's tried it. A homemade vanilla sauce goes together quickly on the stovetop and is yummy drizzled over warm servings of this old-fashioned-tasting treat. —Sherry Nice McComb, Ohio

    This was fantastic. I used apple fritter bread and served with vanilla ice cream. Be sure to temp check near the top of the pudding, that will ensure the custard is cooked through to the top.

    I have also diced up apples with the raisins. With vanilla sauce there isn't much that is better or as easy to make.

    This looks good, just wondering about the bread. Do you use just regular 'wonder bread' type bread or a more homemade type?
