My BF loves bread pudding so I suprised him. He loved it! He said that it was better than our local restaurant's...YEAH!!! I agree that it only needs 3 1/2 hours cooking time. Thank you so much for this super easy pleaser!
Great go-to recipe when you want something yummy and simple. Note on the times...crockpot heat setting vary GREATLY. Some brand's "low" is the same as other brand's "high".
This was a pretty good bread pudding, but the times were off, I think (others have said that it took them fewer hours in their crockpots, too). Mine actually burned a bit, as I left it in the crockpot while I went to the store and when I got back (by which time it had only been on for three hours) the bottom was burned. This took away from the taste, of course. I'm not sure if this was the only thing that made it "off" taste-wise, but it was not among the best bread puddings I've had/made. I did enjoy the ease of making it in the crock pot, but the technique needs some work. Thanks for posting!
