  1. I made this for Easter brunch. It was easy and delicous. My sister doesn't usually like bread pudding, but she loved this. I put it together the night before, refrigerated it and baked it in the morning. I used a bread pan and sliced it to serve. The carmel sauce was very tasty. Thanks!
  2. This has become standard fare at my Sunday brunches. Absolutely wonderful!!! Thanks! Al
  3. Sunday mornings are usually our special breakfast day. This recipe is a good one to do the night before because getting it ready the next morning is so easy. I used fresh french baguette. Very good and loved the apples and caramel glaze. I did have to scrap some of the glaze out of the pan as it didn't all make it out when I turned the pan over. Will be in my Sunday breakfast rotation of recipes. Thanks.
  4. Made this for breakfast. Very quick to assemble and no work the next morning, just pop it into the oven and you are done. Served to my family with sausage and juice, very filling! Will keep this for brunch or a hearty breakfast.
