  1. I threw this together as a treat for some last-minute guests. Simple ingredients, divine results! I had to sub some almond milk for part of the milk, and I'd say to be careful with adding extra sugar. I did, and next time I will stick to the recipe to suit my tastes.
  2. I was really excited about this one, but felt it fell short in my opinion. I love bread pudding and thought the addition of banana would be great. Instead, I found that the banana pieces that ended up on the top of the dish got brown, and there wasn't enough flavor. Maybe it needs more vanilla or heavy cream. I did use a mixture of skim milk and some half & half that I wanted to use up, and I skipped the sauce (I never eat sauce on my bread pudding). It is probably better with the sauce, but for me to give bread pudding a top review, it needs to be able to stand on its own.
  3. This was fantastic. I used 1 cup of sugar instead of 1/2 cup as my husband likes it sweeter. It was delicious! We will definitely make this again! Thanks!
  4. Ths sauce is great but my pudding didn't turn out.... plan on trying again... I fogot the butter.....
  5. I'm not fond of bread puddings but made this for guests and it was great. The pudding itself isn't overly sweet but the sauce gives it the sweetness it needs. Served with vanilla ice cream and it was delicious. Might try it with hot fudge in addition to the vanilla sauce and ice cream -kinda a Banana Split Bread Pudding!
