  1. Yummy and easy. I will be making this often as my family loved it. Thanks, Nancy!
  2. I was disappointed in this recipe. First of all, I found a pie dish to be much too small. I had to use a 2 qt. dish. Second, I think the apples and the bread needed to be mixed together and not layered. I think it would have come out better that way. I will do that next time. The overall flavor was pretty good. Not my favorite recipe.
  3. I agree with susan529, cherries taste better than raisins. Tried it with plain white bread since I had no cinammon bread, came out good anyway. Thanks.
  4. first time making bread pudding a favorite dessert of my boyfriend beautiful presentation, he said it was the best he's ever had and ate 3 pcs in one sitting i used cinnamon bread (pepperidge farm) instead of cinnamon raisin, since we do not like raisins, added some dried cherries between the bread layers, this was a nice substitution this recipe is a keeper, thanks
