"My husband loves bread pudding I added a twist by using Hawaiian Sweet bread as part of my bread mixture and it just added a little more love to an already great recipe"

"Instead of mixing the bread with the milk mixture in a bowl as instructed, I placed the bread in the dish then poured the milk mixture over it. Not all of the liquid would fit, so I ended up discarding about 2 cups. I will cut down on the milk next time or use a larger dish. ThenI topped it with chopped pecans. I will definitely make this again!"

"This was delicious! I used it as a base, then added some of my mother-in-law's ingredients to make it comparable to my husband's favorite. This recipe was a lot easier. I added vanilla, cinnamon, and 1/4 c. melted butter, and 1 1/4 c. sugar."

"I made this for a funeral lunch at my church. Evidently bread pudding isn't made very often as I had a lot people tell me how much they enjoyed it. I added some vanilla and cinnamon before baking it and served it with a brown-sugar brandy sauce."

"This is very versatile because you can use whatever bread you need to use up - especially slightly stale donuts, sweet rolls, croissants, or whatever."
