Bread pudding is one of the easiest desserts to cook, and one of the best ways to use up bread that is stale or unappetizing. A good recipe to try if a batch of homemade bread came out a bit disappointing. A great way to get rid of leftover cornbread pancakes that the kids weren't about to eat, days later.
This is another recipe that powdered or condensed milk can be substituted for fresh. I'll have to try homemade yogurt sometime. That means the only fresh ingredients you really need are eggs and butter.
Just throw everything but the bread in the slow cooker, then stir. Add the bread, re-stir. Cover and cook on low for three hours.
