my family really liked the bread pudding. I woulld definately make it again. It was very easy and I have most of the ingredients in my home already. I

I put all the wet ingredients into a bowl, then added the bread. That way I could really make sure it was moistened without slopping it all over the place. I added more apple (with the skins on) and ground nutmeg. I upped the sweetner to 3/4 cup, which was too much because I used the raisins. I think when I make it again, I might add some nuts. Overall, I really enjoyed this. I didn't use a water bath, because I forgot. It still came out fine as far as I could tell.

Delicious! I love the apples in the recipe, and it's fantastic that it's healthier

Wonderful recipe, not too sweet. Used almond milk in place of regular milk, and it came out better that way--the almond flavor really complements the other ingredients in the pudding. Used pear in lieu of apples. The only thing I'd do differently next time is to use a wider pan to have more of the crusty top, rather than the softer bottom portion!

If you don’t care for sweet desserts, you may want to try this subtly sweet bread pudding. The raisins and apples add just enough sweetness and flavor to make this a delightful dessert that’s a little healthier than the average bread pudding.

Delicious! This recipe was just want I needed. I used pears instead of apples and brown sugar. It turned out great!

We didn't hate this which is a miracle since we hate bread pudding. I did have to bake it an extra 25 minutes to make it not have standing fluid, but this was my 1st time making it & inexperience may account for that.

I have used unsweetened almond milk for part of the milk. I have also used cinnamon raisin bagels for the bread & raisins. I like it with less sugar and I like the apples. I'm not always a raisin fan, so the apples are a good change.
