This is a delicious bread pudding recipe. I only made half of the recipe, and used two eggs. I also added a touch of nutmeg, which I thought complemented the whiskey sauce very well. The result was light and moist, and I will definitely make it again! Thanks for sharing this recipe.
This is an excellent recipe. I bought a loaf of french bread but I kept forgetting to make this, so by the time I did the bread was very hard. I had to add extra milk to compensate, but that was the only change I made to this. I served this without the whiskey sauce because I'm a bread pudding purist. My mother and aunt were over for dinner and they both love bread pudding and both ate a bunch and took the recipe - quite a compliment if you knew my aunt. :) Very, very good and super fast! It would have taken virtually no time at all if my bread had been fresh. As it was, I think it took me maybe 10 minutes to prepare. Thank you so much...I have been looking for a good bread pudding recipe for years. Who knew the best one would be so easy? This was perfect.
Simple to make. Absolutely scrumpous to eat.
