Delicious!! Little time consuming- but worth it. I had to cook mine way longer- a good 20 minutes longer. I just kept touching the top of it to see if it was setting. I used regular bake and not convection bake. Used exact ingredients and good quality french bread from La Brea bakery.

This is wonderful! I don't like bourbon so I substituted dried cranberries and grand marnier. It was incredible....

This sounds really good but we don't use bourbon. Any suggestions for a substitute for the bourbon.?

Yum-O! Made for Christmas dinner. Absolutely delicious. Substituted golden raisins for regular. Was nervous that there wasn't even custard to cover the bread, but it turned out great.

Really enjoyed this, though I skipped the sauce because we don't like things too sweet. Used a mix of golden and dark raisins. Served with some fat-free vanilla ice cream on the side. Simple to make!

Kings Hawaiian Bread is very good with this reciep.Some times I add nuts,currents,goldenrasins but depends on who I am serving this to.I use brioche as well.It is a simple reciep,but very tastey.Prepare the night before.

I have a question: If I make this Bread Pudding can I substitute Kings Hawaiian Bread instead of the french bread? Also, can I add macadamia nuts to it instead of raisins? I am a great cook & have a guests coming who does not like raisins, & I was also thinking since Easter is here how nice it would be to use the sweet Kings Hawaiian Bread. THANKS!

Really great. I didn't change the recipe one bit and it was perfect. I didn't find it time consuming at all. It was only a 15 prep and then forget it in the fridge until after dinner and cook for 30 minutes total. Simple and yummy.

This is very good. I used dark rum instead of bourbon because I'm not fond of whiskey. Rum and raisins just seem to go together. Also didn't have corn syrup for the sauce so just melted the butter with some brown sugar and some more rum and it was good - not too sweet. My friend from Britain had bread pudding as a child with birds custard. I will try that next time.

This is my go-to bread pudding recipe. It is fantastic and no one would ever guess it was "light". Easy and quick, too. The sauce is a must, and if you have extra, it's great on ice cream.
