Not your Grandma's bread pudding! Totally awesome and decadent! I used King's Hawaiian bread and didn't dry it out in advance. The sauce is also delicious. I used Ryan's Irish cream, much more economical than Bailey's considering it's being used in a recipe. I'm giving this 5 stars, but they're not showing up on my review... fyi.

I am a middled aged female, wife & mother of one teen aged boy. (Wife of one middle aged man, LOL). I work part time as a manicurist specializing in Gel nails. I think some of my favorite recipes are from the cook books you buy from Church or charity groups. I also really like my Texas State Fair cookbook. These seem to have recipes that people eat every day with ingredients that are readily available. I like to cook, but my favorite past-time is going to Vegas Baby!
