What a wonderful flavored dessert!! I have to admit up front, I had never had bread pudding so really wanted to try one and when I saw the challenge for the breads for ZWT 9, I just had to tag this one!! Since it is only DH and I (he hasn't had bread pudding either, lol), I scaled this back to 1/2 of the recipe and that is still a lot just for the 2 of us. I made this as written, including the whiskey sauce, but I think next time I would make it a vanilla sauce as Nancy suggested, especially if you are serving this to kids, as the alcohol doesn't really cook off and the sauce is very strongly flavored with the whiskey. But must admit, by the end of the eating this dessert, I didn't notice the whiskey flavor so much, lol!!! Just loved the flavor of the bread mixture with the cinnamon/nutmeg tastes and then loved the pecans and crunchy topping, so good. Thanks so much for sharing the recipe!!
I do enjoy a good bread pudding and his one is very good indeed. I made just 4 servings and my single change was to use Malibu Light Spiced Rum. Lovely use of spice and nuts in this recipe and the yummy sauce could be used on so many things that it's a keeper all by it's self. Thanks very much Nan for sharing this. :D
My review could follow diner524's and be pretty much the same. lol. I've only had bread pudding once before - a long time ago - but never made it before. I halved the recipe for 2 of us and served it in small dessert glasses. After reading Lynn's review, I actually made 2 sauces - one with whiskey and one with rum. My grandson preferred the whiskey sauce while I preferred the rum sauce. This was a huge hit at my house and when his friend came over the next day, they inhaled the leftovers. Thanks Nancy for a great new dessert. Made for ZWT9 Bread Challenge.
