How to store the bread pudding?

Storing this delicious pudding is not that big of a heist. All you need to do is, pack the leftover pudding in the airtight container and let it sit in the refrigerator for three days. Just warm it through in the microwave.

If you have a large batch of leftovers, place them in an airtight container and freeze them for three months. Whenever you feel like eating the pudding, just heat it through in a preheated oven at 300-degree with a small dot of butter for about 10 minutes. Honestly, as delicious as the fresh and the crust will be the same.
