This was really nice and sweet but it took longer than 30 minutes to make the liquid decrease tro the point where the bread pudding became set.
This was my first time making bread pudding. The recipe was easy to follow, and I ended up with fantastic bread pudding! I reduced the amount of sugar to 1/2 cup and adding about a 1/2 cup of raisins. Otherwise followed recipe. Will be making again, thanks!
I'm only rating this 3 stars because of the way I made it... in other words, it's my fault!! I used skim milk. I also used only 1 1/2 cups of cold milk and did 1/2 cup of Jack Daniels to give it a zing. I used 1 1/4 tspns of cinnamon, and only 1/2 tspn of nutmeg. I just pulled it out of the oven, and so far it tastes good, but there is a large amount of liquid pooling up in the area that I just cut out of. Next time I will do less Jack Daniels, and use whole milk or skim with heavy cream. I prefer my bread pudding cold, so once it cools down and is ready for me, I'll come back and add more comments (and perhaps update my rating). Thanks for a simple recipe though! ***Tasted it this morning after cooling in the fridge overnight. The flavor is great, however I do regret not using whole milk. The skim milk gave it a lighter, thinner texture, and I believe bread pudding should be rich and dense and creamy. Thanks again... I'll try it next time with whole milk.
