Raisins appear in the picture of this dessert and would add to the carbohydrate per serving count if included in the recipe.

Really whether you use white or wheat bread, they are about the same amoutn of carbs UNLES you use the low carb bread like I do for us. But I agree with it being too high in cholesterol! YIPES!
