Totally delicious !! I used leftover stale hot cross buns and the whole recipe worked wonderfully - not a solitary problem. I did cut back on sugar though.
Although I was originally going to make this for us here at home, a friend of mine needed something simple but special for a picky family get-together, & I thought of this for her ~ They loved it, & it's definitely on my list of things to make just for myself sometime soon! I know the dessert is 'New Orleans' & the ingredients called for French bread, but I ended up using a loaf of nutty, crusty, whole wheat bread instead, & that worked out very well ~ I know 'cause I kept a serving just for taste-testing! Thanks for a great keeper! [Tagged, made & reviewed in Every Day Is a Holiday tag]
This is a great bread pudding. It is light in texture, yet it's very tasty. In my house, my daughter doesn't care for nuts and my son and husband don't care for raisins, so desserts can be difficult to choose at times. And I picked this bread pudding recipe because it doesn't include raisins or nuts, yet it is still so scrumptious. Thanks, gailanng. This is another "keeper" for me.
Yum, yum! this is so good! :) Very rich, and wonderful flavor! I loved this! The only change I made was to cook this in a water bath - my oven has been acting up and I didn't want it to burn or dry out. Turned out perfect! I will make this again! Thanks gailanng! Made for Every Day is a Holiday Edited to add -- I don't have access to "New Orleans Style French Bread" so I used Cuban Bread (Pan Cubano) since that is also a "thin crust" style bread.
