Would give this more stars if I could, made this today for the Waterside Inn where I am one of the Chefs and had to immediately make another as the owners and staff couldn't stop eating it! Soo easy and sooo good thank you BecR, I did use Brioche, some sultanas soaked in Bourbon and sprinkled the top with a little brown sugar also. Used Bourbon in the sauce as well - superb.
This bread pudding was a success at my office party! Substituted brandy for rum and still tasted fantastic.
