I made this for Easter Dinner and it was a hit. Really yummy.

This review is for the spiced rum sauce alone, as I had another bread pudding going - but thought I'd give my vote of confidence, as the sauce is quite excellent, and very easy to make. Next time I have some left over cinnamon swirl bread, I'll give this pudding a try.
