NOT gluten-free, but I'm working on that. A family favorite, I give my GF son some of his gluten-free pumpkin bread with the caramel sauce when we have this dish. In a pinch, I used evaporated milk instead of half & half, seemed to be just as good.

I used a pound of a nutty, whole grain bread for this pudding & also the half-and-half, then left out the rum & omitted the whipped topping! Very nice, topped with this caramel sauce! Thanks for posting the recipe! [Made & reviewed for one of my adopted chefs in this Spring's Pick A Chef event]
