Bread pudding fans just might hoard this yummy butterscotch version. Toppings like whipped cream and a butterscotch drizzle make this dessert absolutely irresistible. —Lisa Varner, El Paso, Texas

"What a fabulous dessert! I put everything in the crock pot, cooked it 3 hours. I didn't need it for another 45 minutes, so I just unplugged the crock pot and left it. It was still warm. I heated caramel topping and added it to the top. Every time I have made it, people just rave."

"This bread pudding was o.k. but at 3 hours - when the knife was "clean" - the outside was burnt. I have other recipes for bread pudding that are better."

"I'm lactose intolerant so I made this pudding with almond milk. I don't have a problem with butter so I used it and the pudding was delicious! Someone asked if this could be baked. I'm sure that would work --- bake at 350 degrees F. I like the idea

of using fresh apples. Has anyone ever tried whiskey sauce to serve with the pudding? I have! Yummy!!!"

"I had a Nesco and I was curious if I could use it as a slow cooker and this was the Nesco advice: "You can use a Slow Cooker recipe and set the temperature at 200 degrees. The unit will cook the product in approximately half the time stated at high setting of the Slow Cooker recipe". Maybe this will help. I now have a slow cooker and everybody loved the Butterscotch-Pecan Bread Pudding."
