I find that bumping the heat up to 400 has a better result. I cut the butter to 1/3 cup the second time I made it, and we didn't notice a quality difference... so better light! Today I tried 1/4 cup butter, which was also really good. Also, I use brown sugar for sprinkling... approximately 1/3 cup.

Really good recipe that I'll make again... it's easier than making smaller quantities on the stovetop and tastes great. Thanks.

Excellent! I made this for Christmas morning and everyone loved it. I made it more like a bread pudding casserole with torn bread pieces in a 9x13 pan. The top was a little crunchier than I would have liked . . . when I make this again I'll probably cover the pan for a bit. Thank you for sharing. Most similar recipes recommend overnight soaking; I didn't miss that step a bit!

This was delicious! I made it with eggnog instead of milk for Christmas breakfast. It was fantastic. I agree that the butter could be cut. We'll definitely be making this again.
