Wow...this bread pudding is so delicious!! It's sweet and rich, just like a bread pudding should be. I halved the recipe and baked it in an 8"x 8" dish for 45 minutes, although now I wish I'd made a full recipe...it's that yummy. The bourbon sauce definitely puts it over the top! I was a little leery of the 5 Tablespoons vanilla extract because I thought it sounded like a lot, but I went ahead and added it as written and it turned out perfect. Thank you for sharing this fabulous recipe. It is definitely a keeper!! Made for ZWT9 "Bread N'awlins Style" challenge for The Apron String Travelers
Why did we love this dessert? Homey, indulgent goodness. Another thing I loved was how it used up the 2 cans of evaporated milk I had in my pantry from a previous contest, and a can of crushed pineapple that has just been waiting to be used for a couple of years. Served this to family when they came over, and they all agreed it was delicious. Thanks for a great variation on a favourite.
This bread pudding is to-die-for! I think the sauce really elevates the dessert. I also agree that it is more like 16 to 20 servings, depending on how you cut it. I tried to cut into 32 little squares like brownies, but I NEEDED just a little bit more! Made for the ZWT #9 Bread N'awlins' Style Challenge.
Made for the Goddesses & the ZWT-9 Bread N'awlins Style Challenge, this bread pudding is a lovely indulgence, but something I would only make to WOW guests. At nearly 1,000 cals per serving (based on a 10-12 serving yield) & altho not my orig intent, my 1st thought as I prepped the pudding was to take your intro to heart, serve it w/o the bourbon cream sauce & save making the bourbon cream sauce for a wow-factor worthy occasion. I halved the recipe & got 8 generous servings vs the 10-12 stated for the whole recipe, so the nutritional data may well be better than stated. We decided to sample this special dessert 3 ways: Plain, lightly dusted w/powd sugar & w/a sml amt of light caramel sauce (primarily for the pics). This is so good & will be made again for guests. I will include the bourbon cream sauce on that occasion & post a new pic. Thx for sharing this yummy recipe w/us. :)
