Maybe it just doesn't matter in this case. I remember a Danish recipe that had everything in grams and decilitres and then called for a tablespoon or a cup (not Danish measures) of something. I understood that to mean that the amount was meant to be an approximation.

I think it matters a lot in this case. I can't stand a dry bread pudding, so personally I'd opt for less bread than you think you'll need.
The best bread pudding I ever made was with stale frosted cinnamon rolls.

I think what bugs me, is if I cut big cubes and measure those, it will measure much different than tiny cubes.

I'm just not OK with approximations with baking. A twinge of OCD maybe

That's why I buy Pepperidge Farm Cinnamon bread. It is already seasoned for you. Lazy way of doing it. Just have to make the custard. My daughter loves to have raisins in her bread pudding. So I make her happy. I also make the caramel sauce for her to pour over it.
