I love flavored bread puddings!! I use the fat-free flavored coffee creamers and they work great! And, like KitchenManiac, I like to let it sit and soak up on the counter for a while. Our local grocery has day old bagel slices that they sell for 75cents a bag, and I love the pudding made with them!!
The bread pudding gave wonderful Bailey aroma but it retained so much alcohol that the taste was way off. I don't like desserts that are overpowered by liquor and this is one of them.
This was a delish addition for St. Paddy's day! There was just a lone morsel left after the family descended. The only change I'd make would be to lighten up on the Baileys a smidge -- the alcohol was a touch overpowering. Then again, it's the post-meal drink and dessert rolled into one!
this was a treat for DH. he couldn't stop eating this....lol. I made this for him when I had some leftover french bread and he has asked me to make it again anytime that happens again....lol. Thank you for sharing your recipe with us.
Tasty! Wonderful flavor, we didn't find the Bailey's overpowering at all. It did take much longer to bake, but that might be because of our altitude. I wouldn't change a thing except to maybe double the recipe. maybe next time we'll have it with homemade ice cream. Yum!
Yummy Bailey's flavor, moist and creamy. Some notes: I used 1% milk and forgot to scald it, the pudding came out fine. Our local grocery stores sell two 8-ounce loaves of french bread in a paper sleeve and call them French Twins. I used one loaf and it was just the right amount.
We are moving soon and I decided to give this recipe a try in an effort to use up an open bottle of Bailey's. I used a mixture of whole wheat and white bread (since it was what I had) and followed the rest of the recipe to a T. YUMMY! Iwill be making this one again.
I think this is a great recipe but I would use less Bailey's next time. The alcohol flavor was too strong and I felt it overpowered the dish. Will make again with half or less of the Bailey's. Thanks!
We used pannetone instead of French bread and eliminated the raisins (they were already in the pannetone) - although it would have been just as delicious if we had included the raisins. This made a wonderful Christmas dessert!
Made this for St. Paddy's day yesterday--I wish I had made a double batch! Everyone wanted more, and I, sadly, only made the one, thinking that not everyone likes bread pudding. Anyhow, the flavor was fantastic. Thanks for the great recipe! Will make again!
