This was very good. Very good flavor and very moist. I had to cook it for an hour. The pears were good but a little weird. I think I may try something else next time like apples or apricots or something. That is the nice thing about this: almost any fruit will work.
This is gonna be my new bread pudding recipe. I doubled the recipe and baked in a 13 x 9" pan, I had to bake it for 90 minutes. I used soft bread cubes instead of dry and I also used peaches instead of pears. Thanks Karen
My family absolutely LOVED this! It tastes way more naughty than it actually is. Fantastic recipe.
I made this for an Easter breakfast at church. I only got a taste, but it was wonderful and I look forward to making it for my family. Thanks for sharing!
I have made a lot of unsuccessful bread puddings and this is my first really successful one. This is light, moist, crunchy and just the right amount of spice. I loved the idea of the pears, and will try other fruit in the future. Thanks for a recipe that can be a great breakfast or with vanilla ice cream a great finish to a dinner. Carole in Orlando
This made a delicious Sunday morning breakfast. Not too sweet, just the right amount of crunch to the topping. I just made it this morning and DH has already asked when we're having it again!
I prepared this last night and refrigerated it! I put the topping on before I popped it in the oven this a.m. and it was a wonderful breakfast treat! The heavenly smell got the kids out of bed, my little one even licked his plate :) Everyone went their separate ways in a good mood! Thank you Karen for this delightful dish. I will make it again and again! It's a *keeper* ~V
This is so good. As did the previous reviewer I used Splenda Brown Sugar and EggBeaters. I didn't have any pears so I chopped an apple and placed them on top of the bread. I will make this again when I get some pears but the apple bakes very well and was very tender and tasty. Cinnamon also went into the topping. What a very lovely breakfast server still warm from the oven. This is a very simple recipe that works perfectly.
This is sinful--having dessert for breakfast! I used egg substitute in place of the eggs and Splenda Brown Sugar blend for the brown sugar. Instead of sprinkling the cinnamon over the pears, I added about 1/2 teaspoon to the egg mixture. Also, the topping was asking for nuts and I tossed in a handful of chopped pecans. As I said, it is sinful.
