I found the guava paste in brick form at my grocery store. Had never had it before. Very, very sweet. This recipe recieved a mixed review at my house - the adults liked it a lot; the teenagers didn't like it at all. It was a little odd for them -- the bread pudding is not sweet at all, but the guava sauce is very, very sweet. My husband and I really liked this dish. Follow the serving suggestion - pour a full 1.5 Tbsp of sauce all over the top of the pudding. I would make it again (when the kids aren't around). I like that it is a sweet, tasty dessert with generous portions and very, very low saturated fat.
