Absolutely Delicious! I made the bread pudding using a 16 ounce loaf of Cinnamon raisin bread instead of the french bread and it was soooo good. I didn't add any extra raisins and it came out perfect. The bourbon sauce was to die for! Thanks so much for posting this recipe! 10 stars if i could! -Italianmomof2
Soak the raisins in bourbon! Also added almond extract to the bread pudding.
Absolutely fantastic even though I screwed it up. I used day old ciabatta bread instead of french bread (which I do not recommend) because it was unable to absorb enough of the milk mixture but the top that set up was delicious! The bourbon sauce was wonderful! I will definitely be making this again but I will use french bread instead of ciabatta.
A quick to prepare desert thats worth more than the effort to make it. It is delicious.
This was a really fantastic bread pudding! I made it exactly as directed, except left the raisins out of half of it. And I must admit, we doubled the amount of bourbon it called for! This is now our official bread pudding recipe and I see us making it many more times!
My niece and I just made this bread pudding today perfect perfect perfect this would definitely be my families new bread pudding recipe the only thing was that my sister wanted me to add apples and peaches to it.
Incredible. I made this for a family gathering and everyone said it was the best bread pudding they had ever had. The only change I made was to substitute toffee bits for the raisins as most of us don't care for raisins.
I was sorry to not agree with so many other reviews. This recipe is very easy to make and the bread is very moist but we found this bread pudding much, much too sweet! I did worry about the sweetness as I added the 2 cups of sugar and then followed with the sauce and an additional cup of sugar. If I try it again I will cut the sugar in the pudding to maybe 1/2 to 3/4 cup sugar and then add the sauce to sweeten.
There are restaurants in Kentucky that serve this but substitute chocolate Chios for the raisins. It is heaven!
