"Excellent recipe! Made this with Tsoureki bread (Greek easter bread....also common as a new years tradition) and it was a big hit!"

"Made this with challah. I only had 2 cups of milk, so just used 2 cups milk and 2 cups cream. Still was fantastic. Unfortunately, didn't have enough cream to make the caramel sauce. Hubby LOVES bread pudding. Declared this the best he's had in ages!"
