Here's a recipe for a different type of bread pudding that I got from a nice lady in Kentucky by the name of Betty Davis. Believe me, it's the bomb.
SOUTHERN BISCUIT PUDDING
8-10 10 frozen biscuits (NOT the kind in the can)
1 cup sugar*
3 ½ cups whole milk
3 Teaspoons vanilla
1 stick butter or margarine
** Optional: chopped pecans, dried cranberries or raisins
Bake the frozen biscuits according to manufacturer's directions. Let the biscuits cool and then crumble them into a 9 inch x 13 inch baking pan. Melt the stick of butter in the microwave. Mix the sugar, eggs, milk, melted butter and vanilla in a mixing bowl. Pour over the crumbled biscuits. Sprinkle liberally with ground cinnamon, top with *nuts and/or **dried fruit. Bake for 20-25 minutes at 350 degrees until set.
*I have substituted Splenda and the pudding was delicious, my friends didn't have a clue!
**I have used chopped pecans and dried cranberries, delicious!
