Taste Buds: Ultimate Bread Pudding

This is something that my grandmother made for my mother, something that my mother made for me, and someday I hope that I will be making this delicious dish for my kids. I have made a few little modifications to my recipe and I have added Grand Marnier for an adult twist. Oh so yummy.

Pam for the Dish

½ Tablespoon of Corn Starch
½ Cup of Sugar
1 Cup of Hot Water
