    Perfect! Hate to toss out bread that we just won't eat. This recipe was quick, easy and stay-home friendly because the recipe called for my pantry ingredients. Added a splash of vanilla and made my own bourbon sauce. From days-old bread to delicious dessert with little time & fuss.

    This didn’t do it for our household. We are bread pudding junkies and found this lacking in flavor not sweet enough. Also only makes a small 9” cake pan so note you will need to double for large gatherings

    Yum! Added a splash of vanilla, did 1 tsp of the cinnamon plus 1/2 tsp of the nutmeg. Had to bake it 5-10 min longer. I made a warm custard sauce to top it with. Heaven!

    Wow, what a difference!! Add a bit of spiced rum... Fantastic. But, 20mins more cooking time. Alcohol! 2oz. Thats why. Good mix up. P. S. Let the mixture sit for 30mins prior to cooking... Big difference

    Absolutely amazing, simple bread pudding. I added a tablespoon of brown sugar and baked for 45 mins, came out exactly how it was advertised. The whipped cream I added a teaspoon of Vanilla and a tablespoon of powdered sugar, perfect topping along with fresh berries. Thanks to who is responsible for such a simple, delicious recipe!

    It came out tasting and smelling amazing. I am definitely saving this for the future. It reminds me of my great grandmas.

    Amazing recipe... I add a can of evaporated milk to the bread (hot dog buns work amazingly well!) and milk/butter and egg mixture, and then condensed milk on the top at the last 3 minutes of baking... I thin out the condensed milk with water to 1: dilute the sugars a little, 2: make it a sauce , and 3: use it as a drizzle

    That was a recipe easy to make... Really like the texture and the flavor. My husband ask for a second portion so I will definitely do that recipe again.
