"I received this recipe from my husband's aunt who has been serving this at her restaurant for years. Great for people who don't like bready things, because it has more custard than bread."

I love this recipe. I've made it three times and it always comes out so good! Thank you so much for sharing.
Without a doubt, bread pudding is my husband's favorite dessert. We are pretty good foodies and he has eaten bread pudding all over the country and probably in every restaurant in NOLA. I have made different recipes many, many times at home. I made this recipe last night. He says this is absolutely, positively the BEST he has ever eaten. I agree.
I bake my own bread but I followed the recipe exactly. I always use a butterscotch, caramel sauce with bourbon from Bon Appetite magazine. EXTRAORDINARY! This will be "the" bread pudding forever. No reason to try anything else.
Oh, did I mention, IT'S EASY!
This recipe makes the absolute best Bread Pudding on earth!
last week we bought a big box of Krispy Cream Donuts, that my friends daughters school was selling as a fund raiser. We are not really a fan of those donuts, but, I bought them to help out the school band. I was so darn happy that I did. I tore apart those donuts and used them in this recipe instead of bread. A gigantic OMG...The absolute best we have ever eaten. I do have one suggestion. I made ours in a very tall bake pan. This made the Custard part sink to the bottom and it turned out spectacular!
I made this recipe last night and it is fantastic. More custard than bread pudding but full of yummy old fashioned goodness. I will be making this again and again. Thanks.
Thank you so much for sharing, I was afraid I would never be able to try my grandfather's perfect bread pudding again , I was wrong thanks to you! God Bless!
Amazing! My husband and I have been trying different bread pudding recipes and this is the one. I used 7 slices of bread because they were not thick. I sprinkled on lots of raisins and cinnamon. Will make this many times!
I have made this several times now. This is exactly like my Dad use to make more than 50 years ago. His recipe too, was in his head - never written down. I tried many other bread pudding recipes, but none had the custard in it like Dad's, until I found this one! My husband, I, and anyone I have served it to, feel that it is the best ever! Thank you SweetPea for submitting!!!!!!!
