    This was simple and easy. my family loved it.
    Was a good recipe, the sauce was a little bit difficult, but will try again!
    I have never in my life attempted bread pudding however its my boyfriends absolute fave dessert so for Valentines Day I thought Id surprise him. He loved it and has stated its my duty now to make this every now and then. Thank you soooooo much for this recipe
    I have never made bread pudding before. I added a few things to this one and it came out great. I used all fresh 2% milk, subed canned peaches for the pinapple, used brown sugar instead of white, and added 1 tsp cinnamin and 1/2 tsp fresh nutmeg. Makes a huge pudding. Very good comfort food.
    The recipe for this bread pudding is a simple, basic recipe. It offers a quality texture and wonderful taste. It asks for apples, however, I didn't care for the underlying taste of the apple.
    ... I will omit the pineapple next time. I found it distracting -- I just want bread pudding. Other than that, it was delicious!
    This came out so moist and tasty. My family can't get enough of it. It never last over night in my house.
    Taste so good and southern
