The amaretto is key in this! I have had the original recipe at Norma's and this is it....Think some of the 4 stars didn't use the amaretto. Sublime bread pudding. Thanks!
We're 2 who love coconut, so that was included as I followed the recipe right on down ~ Well, almost, that is, 'cause I did substitute a whole grain bread for what was given in the ingredients! You have a great tasting bread pudding here & I'm keeping your recipe around, for sure! Made & reviewed as a THANK YOU for completing the Baker's Dozen Special in this fall's round of Pick A Chef]
Good bread pudding. I did use 2% milk, and I used lemon juice..Liked the flavoring, though we were not used to the coconut being in this, though it was a nice change, it was all right. I will make again towards the winter months, and adjust it, and will update the review . Made for 1-2-3 hits.
This is a very nice bread pudding. I omitted the coconut because of it's very high sat fat and skipped the sauce because I had some stewed apples that I wanted to use as a topping. I have to say that I loved the way it ended up with a raised edge and flat center, it would be perfect for adding any type fruit filling to topping if you were serving it to the entire family. I used Splenda for the sugar in the amount of 1/2 a cup which I found to be sweet enough, all skim milk (no water). Also, since I wasn't making the sauce I added Frangelico (out of Amaretto) to the pudding.
The ingredients at the top are messed up (the line for 1/3 c. shredded unsweetened coconut etc.) The second part didn't make any sense, but I omitted the coconut anyway and added 1/3 c. raisins and 1 c. nuts instead, and used 1/4 c. margarine. I used Amaretto for flavoring for the sauce, and it was really good with a big dollop of whipped cream served warm! Thank you for sharing your recipe with us Breezermom!

Very good bread pudding. I don't think I've had it with coconut before. I used sweetened coconut so cut my sugar down to 1 1/4 cup. I didn't make the sauce because I like to serve bread pudding warm with a scoop of ice cream. Thanks for posting breezermom! I will make this again! I think craisins would be great in this!
