"This is a very tasty recipe, I did however make 3 adjustments. I first toasted my bread cubes in the oven 225 tossing a few times, took about 20 minutes while I prepped other ingredients. A trick I learned from America's Test Kitchen. So worth the time!! Gives the pudding amazing texture. Also egg breads like Challah or Brioche are fantastic for bread puddings and french toast. Secondly, I did not have any egg substitute so I used regular eggs (2) for 1/2 cup and worked great, we like the additional protein to balance out the carbs. Third, I did not add cinnamon as I had already make a homemade batch of no sugar added applesauce with cinnamon sticks to infuse the applesauce. Very easy will not spend the $$ to buy the jar stuff again and you can make to your taste. Result: delicious, not overly rich, yet decadent. We will be serving this at our Thanksgiving Table this year, a la mode of course..."

"I made this dessert this past Saturday for a family get-together and followed the recipe exactly except that I used three finely diced gala apples (instead of the 1/2 cup called for). I made it again for my Red Hat chapter meeting yesterday and made some changes: I added about 1/2 cup of raisins, 1/2 teaspoon ground allspice, larger chunks of apples (used an apple slicer then sliced each wedge) but still used 3 gala apples. Both groups loved it. In both cases, I made it ahead of time, then put in refrigerator until about 45 minutes before we wanted to serve it. Regarding the Egg Substitute: it is available in a liquid form and in a dry form. The first time I made it, I only had the dry form in my cupboard and it wasn't clear in the recipe which form to use. I assumed the recipe was calling for 1/2 cup of liquid egg substitute and that 1/2 cup was equal to two eggs, then mixed the appropriate amount of dry egg substitute with water to equal two eggs. It worked perfectly."

"Delish!!! Am making it the second time--first time with day old sourdough, today left over Monkey Bread. Also have added 1 cup raisins plumped in hot water with a little added brandy (can use extract if you wish) and about 1/2 c. coarsely chopped walnuts. To save on sugar content due to diabetes in spouse/guests, I used unsweetened applesauce and 1/4 c. Splenda brown. The sugar-free caramel topping is still a little too sweet so it is optional for us. Will definitely be a go-to dessert in future!!"

Our DIL makes very good bread pudding, in fact before trying hers I never much cared for it.  Anyhow I'll share her secret...don't use regular bread.  If you can get ahold of Hawaiian Sweet bread/rolls use it...they add a very nice sweet, richness to it, instead of bread.

You could always use brown sugar substitute to cut the calories for those on a low sugar or diabetic diet. I always use is when brown sugar is called for in a recipe.
