I needed a bread pudding recipe and Kittencal has been a go-to gal for me several times. However, I was surprised that I was not wowed by this recipe. I do think it's tasty but for me, it needed more -- cinnamon or coconut or chocolate or some other kind of flavoring or add-in. This is the first bread pudding I've seen that is very light in color. The texture was very nice though. Regarding the sauce, the directions were not specific so I guessed on what heat to cook the sauce. It was a bit grainy for me, especially after it had cooled. I had made a different caramel sauce for something else and it turned out better. All-in-all, it was tasty but I'll try some other recipes.
