"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!"
