My wife and I had 10 couples over for desert on New Years Eve. We decided we wanted to make this recipe after reviewing it.. are we glad we did. All I can say is this, they kept going back to the server for more. I made a double batch and by the end of the evening it was gone. Thank you Jeannie for a great desert recipe; it is very easy to make and extremely tasty. It is being passed on to all of our family members by request.
I did not find this bread pudding to be flavorful. I can't figure out what it was lacking, but it just wasn't quite right for me.
Loved the fruit in it but be sure to tuck them into the slices of bread or they get burned. I'd also cover it with foil next time so that the tops of the bread pieces don't get burnt.
Bread pudding is my weakness, so I'm always on the lookout for a new recipe, especially one that doesn't require tons of butter or heavy cream. Instead of using butter to grease the pan, I sprayed 4 ramekins (halved the recipe) with cooking spray, used an egg substitute for the eggs and f/f half & half for the whole milk. Baking the dish (or ramekins) in a water bath helps to eliminate a soggy center, as some reviewers experienced. The spices complimented the fresh berries perfectly -- will make this again. Thanks!
Tonight, I made three bread pudding recipes (I had alot of left over hot dog and hamburger buns after a cookout). This recipes wins hands down over Grandmother's Bread Pudding and Bread Pudding with Whiskey Sauce III.
The bread pudding alone is very flavorful. The addition of the sauce makes a great recipe even more decadent. I only made a couple of changes: I used fresh strawberries and a cup of frozen mixed berries (blackberries, blueberries, and raspberries). I also substituted buttermilk and heavy cream for about 3 of the 6 cups of the whole milk--I needed to use these items before they went bad.
Update: I sent my husband with a batch to take to work and I took one to my place of employment. We both received comments stating that this was the best bread pudding EVER!
Thank you for the wonderful recipe!
I made this for dessert last night and everyone loved it, even my husband who claims he hates any bread pudding. I followed the recipe exactly except the cooking time, I had to add an extra 30 minutes and I didn't have very many blackberries so I added a few blueberries, also I added pecans. I've made several different bread puddings and this is one of my new favorites. The mix of the berries and the brown sugar sauce is great. It tastes even better the next day! Make sure that you use a good french bread and that it's definately stale, trust me it makes a difference. Thanks for a great recipe!
We Tried this recipe, it was really easy and everyone absolutely loved it. We will DEFINATELY make it again and again.
I'm not a fan of bread pudding but this was delicious! I used 2 cups of strawberries and no blackberries since I didn't have any on hand. Also I used 2% milk mixed with half & half and evaporated milk since that's what I had. It still worked and will make it again.
