"This is WAY too sweet and I used 1/4 cup less white sugar... should have cut it out of the recipe altogether."

"My 16 year old made this exactly as written --- it is DELICIOUS! In fact, the family agreed it was the best bread pudding we ever tasted. We served it warm and highly recommend topping with some fresh whipped cream!"

"Great bread pudding. This recipe is easy to modify to suit almost anyone's taste. Tonight I added chopped apples and raisins. It was delicious! My hubby said we need to have this again tomorrow night with ice cream on top."
