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!
