Although this is really a breakfast/brunch dish, my daughters occasionally beg to have this for supper. Occasionally I indulge them.

My family loved this recipe. It was soooo good. I used normal wheat bread because that's all we had, but I felt the texture would have been better with challah. Since my family loves cinnamon, I added a little on top. My mom agreed that it was even better with the cinnamon. Next time I'll put it in the with the egg mixture.

This made a very nice Sunday morning breakfast. I used egg substitutes and low fat half and half, and it was still very tasty. I think next time i will try and cook some sliced apples in the brown sugar mixture and add a little cinnimon for a twist. thanks for posting! I will be trying your butter pecan bread pudding next. I am sure it will be as great as this!
