    This is a very delicious bread pudding (no butter, despite its name!). We loved the addition of apples and who doesn't love a rum soaked raisin! Thanks Rita!

    Made this for a dinner party and it was fabulous - I used fruit bread and added some dried cranberries - soaked the fruit in brandy and it gave it a hint of alcohol.. Served with icecream.. a hit with my chef parents!

    ZWT 3---made this last night with help from was really hard to keep him from eating all the raisins. This recipe excelled in the pudding category as the cream added a richness not usually found in a bread pudding. I loved the addition of the apples along with the raisins and everyone declared it a hit. Thanks Rita, we will be having this dish again.

    This took about 10 minutes longer on the prep, but man is this ever good!! It is really silky smooth going down. I love the flavor of the vanilla and I think it must be the cream that gives it that silky taste. I soaked the raisins in Bacardi Gold Rum so I had to try and refrain myself from eating the raisins! I poured about 1/4 cup rum over the raisins and then microwave it for 1 minute. I'll be making this one again, thank you for sharing Rita L I made this for Zaar Tag 2006
