MY REVIEW

"So freaking delicious!!! Make sure you use a light fluffy bread. Dense bread does not work well."

MY REVIEW

"WOW! Rich and delicious! This became Blueberry, White Chocolate, Amaretto Bread Pudding. I substituted almond extract for vanilla, and made an Amaretto sauce in place of the white chocolate sauce. DIVINE!"

"This was wonderful. After reading all the reviews, I also cut the sugar in half and that was more than sweet. Next time I will cut the sugar in half again, down to 1/2 c, until I find the "just right" amount. I made half the sauce and that was just right. I used half heavy wc and half vanilla flavored almond milk. 50 min was not enough time. At 50 min I covered it and baked it for another 20 min. It came out looking just like the picture. My guests requested the recipe - the ultimate compliment."

"This is crazy good and, indeed, very sweet and very rich. Used half and half instead of heavy cream, half the sugar and skipped the sauce. Delicious!"

"So delicious. Made without the sauce as it was very sweet on its own."
