"We loved this recipe. I halved the ingredients (except the vanilla) and added a mix of 1 TBS. sugar, 1 tsp. cinnamon to the top before baking. Served warm with vanilla ice cream, this is pure old-fashioned, nurturing soul food. I'll make it often. Thanks!"
"I loved it!! Was very quick and easy to make. I left mine in the fridge two hours and turned out perfect!!!! I preffered to eat it cold rather than warm."
"This was pretty good. I did use fat free milk and omited the butter to make it even more healthy for my kids. Thanks."
"SUPERB! This was totally awsome. Pretty guilt free and yummy. Made this for Super Bowl Sunday. Family was impressed and delighted! I had mixed feelings about this recipe because of so many reviews stating on how "mushy" it turned out. Mine came out perfecto! I used a multi-grain bread and followed the recipe perfectly. Was super easy too. The only reason I can think it came out too mushy is perhaps they did not use enough bread and or did not leave it in the fridge over night. I noticed that two hours in the fridge it still looked kind of "runny" so in fear of it being mushy I left it in over night. I would NOT change a thing!"
"I feel really horrible leaving such negative feedback on this, but this was a HUGE disappointment. I was really excited about this recipe, since I love pineapple and I love bread pudding. Also, I'm on a low-fat diet. I followed the recipe exactly, but ended up with a horrible, mushy mess. I tried baking it even longer in hopes of getting some of the liquid to firm up, but that didn't help either. No one in my family could even eat it; not even with the addition of whipped topping. We ended up throwing the entire thing out :-[ I *might* give this one another try, since everyone else's reviews were very good. Unfortunately, my experience wasn't the same. Sorry :-["
"I really enjoyed this one. I used whole wheat bread and it was still quite tasty. I agree with the other comments that a sprinkling of a little cinnamon and sugar on the top would make this perfect. I had the leftovers the next day and the flavors were intensified and even more delish. I will surely use this one for a long time to come. Thanks."
"i loved this bread pudding, tasted even better the day after. thanks!"
"We enjoyed this for dessert last night (and had the left-overs for breakfast this morning). Mine fit perfectly in a 7x11 baking dish. Because it is a low-fat recipe, it won't brown much on top, so here are some suggestions: sprinkle the top with a little cinnamon sugar, or give it a minute under the broiler at the end, or drizzle the top with some Vanilla Yogurt for a pretty presentation. I submitted a photo of the dish as it came out of the oven."
"This was a very tasty recipe. My oldest son couldn't believe it was healthy and he also couldn't stop eating it. I sprinkled just a tsp of brn sugar and cinnamon on top to add flavor. Will prepare again!!!!"
"This was excellent! I made it using Low-Fat Raisin Bread #55562 as the base. I used only egg whites (I don't buy the egg replacers usually) and needed 6 large egg whites. I served it with homemade low-fat vanilla ice cream and it tasted decadent although it wasn't! Thanks so much! "
"Yummmmm! I totally agree with the first two reviews here, and found this wonderful and easy....very "basic" and old-fashioned dish, with a marvelous taste and texture. Thank you, Sis!"
"Healthy and decadent at the same time I used a whole grain bread and wow!! Comfort food. Great warm wiih frozen vanilla yogurt."
