Fruit and Nut Bread Pudding Recipe

Publisher Photo
This recipe started out as a plain bread pudding. My husband, Tom, suggested adding some pecans, then I decided to add the pie filling. These ingredients make the pudding crunchy, moist and even more delicious.

MY REVIEW

This has been our "go-to" company dessert recipe for several years now. Have yet to find someone who doesn't like it! I make a hard sauce to top it rather than whipped cream.

This is a family favorite. My family likes it really plain (without apple pie filling, raisins and pecans). We often have it hot with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.

I have a problem with calories per serving when the recipe says it serves 12-15 people.This one has 488 cals. per serving. So it that based on 12 or 15 servings?Makes a big difference if you're counting cals.

MY REVIEW

2 cups of sugar seems like too much for this recipe. When I make it I'll substitute baking Splenda (in the bag)for 1/2 the sugar and cut down on the other sugar.The pie filling has sugar too.
