I suppose this evens out for the other review where the reviewer did not make the bourbon sauce. I made the rum version of the sauce, but used a different microwave bread pudding recipe that I had already cooked. The sauce was simple yo make, and great at the time, but later on it had a jello-like texture that must be from too much cornstarch. I saved the recipe and will try to make the sauce again for sure.
Didn't have alcohol so I skipped the sauce...I too, used a 1/2 cup of sugar but I used a 1/4 cup of white and a 1/4 cup of brown...I'll cut back on the sugar a bit the next time...Not as good as baked in the oven but in a pinch when you gotta have bread pudding, this works...
This was good. The recipe didn't say how much sugar to add to the bread pudding. I used a scant 1/2 cup. Instead of raisins, I used dried cherries. I also used fat free half and half instead of milk.
