  • I managed to make this bread pudding today....

    I managed to make this bread pudding today. However, as there is sweetened milk, I reduced the amount of sugar from 300 to 200Grms as I had a good feeling that it will get to be too sweet for my liking.
    The result is good and I like it, but next time I'll reduce the sugar again to 150 Grams.
