    DangerBun's Note:

    This is by far the easiest and most delicious bread pudding I have ever encountered. People swoon at the first bite and beg me for the recipe. The quality of your ingredients is crucial to the success of this recipe. Be sure to use a good, bakery-quality Challah bread, and do not make low-fat substitutions for the milk and cream. If you cannot find Challah, substitute it with another slightly-sweet egg bread, like Hawaiian bread. Use only homemade or bakery bread.

      WOW!!!! For those of you unsure if this is the recipe for you, put your mind to rest. This is an absolutely EXCELLENT recipe! The pudding turns out perfectly moist, a beautiful golden color and you wont believe how much it raises when you bake it! The only modifications I made to this recipe is that I used homemade brioche, which was perfect for this recipe, and I soaked my raisins in irish cream to plump. But I can tell you, after having tasted, this would have been fantastic without the added indulgence! My mom has got to be the most difficult woman to buy or cook for. For her birthday this year, I decided to make her a bread pudding, her favorite. She, my father, and the rest of the family couldn't stop raving about it. They have already put in a request for this for my Dad's birthday. Thanks so much for the wonderful recipe!

      I made this for Christmas and got rave reviews! I used Amish Cinnamon bread and left it out 2 days to get stale, then left the pudding in the fridge overnite to soak well. I didn't use raisins or cherries, but added cinnamon. I served it with rum sauce - boiled butter and sugar, tempered egg yolks, and rum extract. I will definitely make this again!!!

      And if you don't get your bread early enough....cube it up & put it in a LOW oven for 30 mins! Worked like a charm. this is a simple & easy recipe. It does take awhile, so plan accordingly (I originally missed the 2 hours+ in the fridge part). But it is WONDERFUL!!! Thank you!
