"This was a very good bread pudding. I used a complete chopped apple and 1/8 teaspoon nutmeg."

"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."

"I made this last week...I took it to my 87yr.old Mom's house, her neighbor was there...they both loved it...all I could hear was 'mmmmm--mmmm' the whole time those little old ladies ate this...both had not had bread pudding since their Momma's made it for them...of course mine did not have raisins in it...maybe next time. Great, easy recipe! Oh...I liked it too...delish!"

"Great recipe! Two suggestions: ADD pecans - the salt & crunch just sent it over the edge, and use a thick french or italian bread. I used some plain white bread and it took over an hour+ to finish baking. Used sugar free caramel."
