"I prepared this dish tonight and it was so good. I used some frosted cinnamon rolls that I made yesterday but they didn't rise and I didn't want to throw them out so I used them in this bread pudding. Oh, my goodness, was it good. Other than that, I followed the recipe exactly. I will make this dish again."

"Great for diabetics. Not overly sweet. Next time I will add a 1/4 cup of raisins and/or 1/4 cup of dried cranberries just for a variable. Then I will continue to make this using the three flavors at different times. Definitely a keeper."
