I can imagine the inviting smells this would produce in the kitchen as it's cooking. This is a great addition to my file of bread pudding recipes, and I'm looking forward to giving it a try. I'm wondering if some cinnamon raisin bagels might be a substitute for the raisin bread, since my wife and I have had great success with bread puddings made with bagels from Panera.

This does say low in item 6.

Is Slow cooker on High or Low.??Does not say in recipe.

Miam! I can taste it!
