Very good! I used multi-grain bread instead of french and half Splenda/half sugar and it turned out delicious. Thanks for the recipe.

This is delicious and smells great. My first bread pudding and I will stick with the recipe. It's rare I don't change something but I like it. Thank you.

This was so tasty! Being from NJ, I would always visit Cape May during the Christmas holiday season and the one particular B&B would serve a bread pudding dish. I decided to finally make one of my own for my Family's traditional Christmas morning brunch and this is def a keeper! not only does it make the house smell fantastic when cooking, but it tastes equally the same. I personally use golden raisins for a lot of baked goods that call for raisins so I added golen raisins to this and King Arthur Flour Company's Vietnamese Cinnamon. I did not add rum and I even got side tracked by my 2 toddlers and accidentally messed up when mixing ingredients and it still came out great! this is a keeper! thanks for sharing!

This was really good - here are my tweaks for the recipe tho - I sauteed an apple and 2 bananas together with brown sugar, honey, cinnamon and pumpkin pie spice.Then I cubed my bread (a loaf of italian bread from walmart for about1.50) I cubed about half the loaf, covered in butter and set aside. I sauteed apples and bananas in 1/4 cup honey and 1/4 cup brown sugar - then I deglazed the pan with grapefruit soda and added 2 capfuls of lemon juice. Then I mixed that mixture with the liquid mixture and coated my bread. What you should do is that directly to your cubed bread and then pour the mixture because the wet mixture turned out to be a little too wet for our tastes. TURNED OUT WITH A WONDERFUL TASTE. The only reason it's not 5 stars is because of the wet issue I had.

Very Good! This recipe was perfect to use up my week old crusty bread loaf and overripe bananas. The banana flavor is nice in it and it was good for breakfast but it was so much better for dessert with a homemade caramel sauce and whipped cream. It was a bit too firm for my liking.

So good! i served this at a labor day weekend get together and everyone LOVED it! i did tweak the recipe just a bit; i added dried cranberries instead of raising for some tartness and i also reduced the sugar to 2/3 cups and added one more egg and 2 bananas- regardless,its delicious! this is leagues better than anything i could have purchased from a bakery or pastry shop!

Great recipe. I made few tweaks. I cut the recipe in half, using a little less sugar than was called for, 2 eggs and extra vanilla/cinnamon. I also used some cinnamon/brown sugar loaf bread and a mixture skim milk and half & half (majority half & half). I skipped the raisins but included some chopped dried figs, and only soaked the bread for about 30 minutes. Perfect texture and strong banana flavor. Yum!

My tweak: 4 eggs instead of 3, 2/3 cup sugar instead of 1, raisin omitted. Very good bread pudding!

I was looking for a way to use some ripe bananas I had, and I ran across this recipe. It is delicious, I did add a little brandy to the dish, that made it even better.
