Made for the Comfort Cafe Event. WOW...in flavour its fantatsic...I love it! This was quite the adventure for me...first time ever making caramel sauce.It took a good 15 minutes to get the sugar and water to turn to caramel but it was worth all the fretting I did. LOL I recommend any first timers to make sure your pot is big enough as the cream and coffee foam up quite a bit when added.

This recipe deserves 5 stars and more! Absolutely a fantastic recipe, that tasted like adessert I'd find in a hometown country restaurant. Will certainly make this again and again!!! The only changes I made was dicing the loaf into small chunks. I also added about 1 tsp of cinnamon to the milk, cream and liqueur mixture. Instead of using a 13 x 9 pan, I used a 9 x 9 casserole dish and baked it about 10 mins longer.

Also, I'm not quite sure what the lemon juice is needed for, as I really couldn't taste it in the sauce. So I would think it's suffice to say it will turn out fine without it.

This is a great recipe, and will try it again, but replace the irish cream with rum or bourbon, just to experiment.

My family loved this dessert. I didn't have a stale loaf of french bread so I bought a fresh one, crumbled it up, and toasted in oven @170 degrees for ~15 mins to make it "stale". I added butter in step 4 and cooked at medium high heat. Couldn't get the sugar to brown properly until I did so and it made a nice toffee flavor instead of caramel. I will be making this every St. Patricks day from now on. It's delicious!

This is a great tasting dessert. I had trouble with the sauce, it would not brown up for me. However, after playing around a bit I did end up with a nice sauce that tasted sensational. Not a speck was left on anyone's plate. Thanks for sharing your wonderful recipe.

This was easily the most popular dessert I served with my Easter dinner (I made three). It got comments such as, "best dessert ever", "almost heaven", etc. It looked perfect and the sauce was fabulous. Thanks for sharing!

i made this bread pudding for my apartment complex residents for their st. patty's day dinner everyone gave it rave reveues. Several of the ladies said to just give them 4 straws and they would happily finish the rest of the sauce off. very addictive.
