I was looking for a sauce for bread pudding that doesn't include butter. So many of the sauces call for butter and I didn't want a greasy, oily sauce. This one fit the bill. It had the perfect amount of sweetness and the rum was delicious in it. Next time I will try this bread pudding recipe instead of just the sauce.

Delicious! The rum sauce was a special treat (and quite good), but I am going to make the pudding again and skip the extra calories of the sauce :) . I like that this is like a souffle. Made for ZWT 9.

Just delicious !! Brilliantly easy to do - I even left a child to get it out of the oven ! I did not make the sauce as I had added a leftover bowl of diced apple to the mix and my kids - although big - are not fans of rum flavouring. I also added loads of sultanas and cinnamon - heavy handed as usual !!
