Oh WOW!! This bread pudding was totally decadent. Your directions were easy to follow. I used a whisk for stirring the sauce. I found it easier to keep the liquid moving so the egg wouldn't curdle. I only used 1 tablespoon of almond extract because I thought 2 would be too strong. The flavor was to my liking, but next time, I might be more brave and add more. I made this for family but it is nice enough to serve to company. Thanks Susan, for sharing a wonderful recipe.
WOW!! Just took this to a winter party and got great reviews. It turned out very creamy and tall. I was glad I had used an extra deep baking dish.
Since I'm not generally a bread pudding fan, this review is based on what my husband and family said at Christmas dessert: This is awesome! My husband emphasized many times last night that he really, really liked it (in other words, please make it again!). Some had with the sauce, some without. They all really liked this and complimented it a lot! I think it was the hit of all the desserts! I will make it again since my husband liked it so well. I can see how it can be frozen in single serving pieces, so I'll probably do that. On behalf of my husband and family, thanks for a great dessert!
