This was very good, but I think I must be a traditionalist. I prefer plain old bread pudding. But that said, my family devoured this and fought over who was taking home the leftover piece. I had raisin cinnamon bread in the freezer so that is what I used.

I used fresh ginger. This is a really good recipe. Moist and tasty. The rum sauce had no rum, so I added it. The sauce is VERY carmelly. I used commercial dinner rolls that would have gone stale before I could use them all.

I hadn't heard of challah before seeing it in this recipe. Unfortunately I wasn't able to buy any so substituted brioche instead (which I found suggested as an alternative eleswhere on the Internet). I loved the fact that this was so easy to make; I made the egg mixture in advance then came back to it when I was ready. This made 6 large portions and we enjoyed it hot one day and cold the following two nichts.
