Very Simplistic Bread Pudding {Granny's Recipe}

My Mother always cooked exceptionally great food with few ingredients, and her Very Simplistic Bread Pudding was no exception. Growing up, I never thought of this dessert as a no frills dessert, just a delicious comfort food.  While French Toast and Bread Pudding at our house was a way to use up stale bread.  There were times you would find my Mother laying sliced bread on a baking sheet to dry out, and you knew what was coming. I have tried Bread Pudding at many restaurants, and none seems to taste like my Mother except this one restaurant we eat fish.  My husband goes to eat their fish, and I go to eat their decadent Bread Pudding With Vanilla Sauce.  What do they say?   Opposites attract..... There is one rule with my Bread Pudding, no raisins.  Mother didn't put them in hers, and I don't put them in mine.  One of her secrets to a rich, creamy Bread Pudding, was when she took it out of the oven, she would pour melted butter all over the top, and w

Apple Walnut Zucchini Bread

Quick Bread is one of the first things that I learned to make in my first year of Home Economics.  Now you can tell how old I am. (he he)   I have to say, Home Economics was always my favorite class in my high school years, and interestingly enough, since I was in high school, that class has undergone numerous name and status changes.  Like the cooking part---the class I took is now totally separate and called Culinary Arts Class.  Historically, the class was mostly women, but with the serge in the culinary field, that has changed.  Quick Bread is a term used in making a bread batter that is made rather quickly using a leavening agent other than yeast.  Zucchini bread falls in that category. I am a big fan of fresh apple cake .  After I saw the recipe for Zucchini Bread over at Joy of Bak ing and she added an apple to her recipe, I decided to add grated apple to my recipe too.  This Apple Walnut Zucchini Bread reminds me a lot of Carrot Bread, but without the
