Jim's Comments:

I didn't have a lot of bread so I used what I had on hand: half a small loaf of homemade white bread made that morning.

Because of not having a lot of bread, I used a 1 1/2 quart slow cooker.

I resisted the urge to throw in a handful of raisins,

The pudding was good without the sauce. In fact, we thought that the sauce really didn't add all that much to the pudding. We thought that a better sauce would be plain, old, vanilla ice cream, or a huge dollop of vanilla custard.

If you make the grape sauce and just 'drizzle' it over your pudding, you'll have a lot of grape sauce left over.

I'll make this again without the grape sauce.
