I love bread pudding and I am always glad to find a healthier version. This is very tasty! Just the right amount of sweetness. I used Baby Kato's Mocha Java Bread to make it, so it had a little extra "mocha" flavor. I will be making this again!
Everyone loved this, even DH. The whole 8-inch pan is gone with only three people at dinner tonight. It was easy to make. It wasn't very sweet (although my sister thought it was rich). If you want it sweeter, adding some mini semisweet chocolate chips would work great. However, I liked the contrast of the not-so-sweet pudding with the Cool Whip alot.
