The bread pudding turned out great...finger licking good!

it was delicious ! i will definitely try it again!
This was excellent! I ended up using about 8c of seeded, multigrain bread. I subbed ground cloves for the allspice and added ~1/2Tbsp cardamom. I ran out of vanilla so 1Tbsp was vanilla almond milk. I baked it for about 55min. The sauce was great! I definitely could have cooked it a bit longer. I cooked it for ~15 min. I used the full 1/2 cup whiskey and it was definitely a boozy sauce, reminiscent of Mardi Gras! This I will making again!
This was amazing!! Accident and left it cooking for 1 hour - it was as ok! Very spongy and packed with flavor!!! New family recipe fav!!
came out great! it's a family must have on Thanksgiving

This bread pudding came out really really good I used fresh French baguettes because I didn’t have stale bread. It ends up tasting like a banana bread pudding with the sauce. Really good.

I made this with cranberry bread and substituted the raisins for dried cherries I also added some sweetened condensed milk that I had left over from making fudge. This recipe came out delicious! For the bourbon sauce I substituted crown royal salted Carmel and it added a nice balance to the sweetness of the dish. So many ways to make this recipe your own!
Amazing!!!!! I could eat this for weeks!

Turned out great. I used 1 pint half and half, and 1 pint cream. I also used rum to soak the raisins and rum for the sauce. Next time I will put less alcohol as half cup was a bit strong. It was not too sweet though even with the cup of sugar in the sauce. I took it to a friend’s house and the hosts and other guests loved it, even those who didn’t put the sauce on it. It was just perfect!

Delicious but, I reduced the sugar content (1c light brown & 1/4 c white) on the advice of other reviewers and I am glad I did! Not overly sweet and the sauce makes up for the removal of the sugar in the pudding. Used evaporated milk instead of whole. The raisins were boozy when marinating (Maker's Mark) but in the pudding they were just plump, a bit boozy, sweet and perfect. Added chopped toasted pecans (1c) for crunch. Cooked for 20 minutes exactly. The bourbon sauce gave me some trouble, though. The sugar would not dissolve into the butter and egg no matter how long I whisked (15 min) on low heat. Once the bourbon was added it became smoother but still had some sugar granules. It was super yummy regardless of the sandy texture. Would make it again and plan to make it on my next hootenanny!

Honestly the best bread pudding Ive ever had. I like more moist bread pudding which this turned out to be great!

Great. Used less sugar and vodka and rum cream instead of the bourbon

As my sister would say "Oh my Lawd!" This was wonderful I had a loaf of cinnamon swirl bread that was a few days old so I was looking for a good use boy, this was it!

Very good. I made glaze on the side and cut the recipe in half since I'm cooking for 4 people. I have my own recipe but I like to try others to see what I can incorporate to make mine better; this recipe is spot on. A+ very good. Suit it to your tastes and you're even more golden.

The bread pudding was very good. Used left over rolls and bisquits. Baked in a 2 1/2 quart casserole dish. Only used small portion of the bourbon in the sauce which was also very tasty.
Ruth S L. 22 Jan 2017
i added chocolate chips and pecans. Everyone loved it. The recipe makes a lot of sauce, so I'd cut it in half and reduce the butter to 3 Tbsp.
