"I am amazed at how many different types of bread pudding there are. This one is wonderful. Prep time includes soaking the bread. This recipe is from Woods Hole B&B Inn, Falmouth, Massachusetts."

    I know this was posted a while ago but hoping to still get an answer. How long of a loaf do you use? My local grocery carries two different sizes.

    Too add a twist to list toast 1 cup chopped pecans or nut of your choice and 1 cup of coconut mix this in before baking the coconut seems to help lessen the moisture in the middle so the cooking time comes out better I sometimes add 1 small can of crushed pineapple to the mixture to make it a tropical bread.

    I'm not going to rate this. This is the first time I made (and ate) bread pudding, and I really didn't like it. My friend Millie, on the other hand, damn near ate the whole thing and I got to make it for her on a regular basis. So, Millie rates it 5 stars!

    This is delicious and smells great. My first bread pudding and I will stick with the recipe. It's rare I don't change something but I like it. Thank you.

    I must admit that I am somewhat of a bread pudding connoisseur seeing it has to be my alltime favourite dessert. Last night I made this bread pudding - only half a batch seeing I had a mere two bananas and a couple of stale wheat rolls to use up. As a previous poster said, this recipe is definately a keeper! I'm going to experiment with turning it into a 'self saucing' recipe so that it's swimming in a yummy caramel sauce as it cooks. Thank you so kindly for sharing. And I shall now go and devour the left overs :)

    So good! i served this at a labor day weekend get together and everyone LOVED it! i did tweak the recipe just a bit; i added dried cranberries instead of raising for some tartness and i also reduced the sugar to 2/3 cups and added one more egg and 2 bananas- regardless,its delicious! this is leagues better than anything i could have purchased from a bakery or pastry shop!

    My tweak: 4 eggs instead of 3, 2/3 cup sugar instead of 1, raisin omitted. Very good bread pudding!
