Reviews for Butterscotch-Pecan Bread Pudding
"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 made this for Thanksgiving and got rave reviews! Everyone loved it."
"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 ideaof 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."
"thank you for a great recipe! Love it!"
"You said it Water4Chocolate!!!"
"TO: mykidzmom23--Back off already--not everyone is perfect like you think you are! RE Recipe: Has anyone tried this with regular, lowfat, or evaporated milk to reduce the high fat calorie count?"
"Directions are very clear jntnewsom and laceyst. Why are you even asking about an oven??"
"Is it baked 3 hours in the oven or is this for a slow cooker?"
"I need a couple of clarifications. 8 slices of bread makes 9 cups of cubed bread? What temperature exactly is low heat for an oven?"
"This was delicious! My family and I are Bread Pudding followers! I used a handful of butterscotch chips and a small handful of semi sweet chocolate chips - turned out wonderful!"
"This was delicious, not too sweet. I didn't use the butterscotch chips, instead I used butterscotch sauce on the top when served."
"We just made this tonight and we used gluten free bread. It wasn't mushy but really flavorful, not overly sweet but sweet enough and a nice way to a cold evening. We also thought about chopping apples next time we make it."
