I didn't try it but I guess it's delicious. I don't remember where I took it. For the servings and time to make, I had to guess cause it was not written on my page.

DELICIOUS and sweet! I liked the addition of the almond extract ~ I used nine slices of 12-grain bread with all crusts removed. The bread pudding baked in a 13 x 9 Pyrex dish, on top of another pan in case of overflow, at 300F for 1 hour 30 minutes, and the meringue baked at 325F for 14 minutes! Easily serves 12 ~ will slice much neater when cold!! Tagged Boomette in the Mardi Gras Photo Tag, February 2012.

Oh Yum! I made this last night for my family and we loved it! I love the almond flavoring in it, and the meringue on top finished it off perfectly. I made this in a 9 x 13 pan and it made alot. We had some right out of the oven with some 1/2 and 1/2 poured on top, yummy. Then today, we ate it right out of the pan cold and it was equally as good. It reminds me a little of coconut cream pie without the crust. I'm not sure why this hasn't been reviewed yet but I know this reviewer will be making it again and again. Its simple and cheap and tastes like it took so much more. Thank you Boomette for this fabulous dessert. Made for Newest Zaar Tag 2008.
