Great Bread Pudding Recipes??
I have just told a very good friend that is about to turn 60 that I would make the desert of his choice for his birthday. And his choice was.....Bread Pudding.
My problem is that I don't like bread pudding and couldn't possibly look at a recipe and decide if it looked good or not (for that matter, I could not taste it and tell you if it was good or not).
So could you post any bread pudding recipes that you think are especially stellar?
Like you, I was never a big bread pudding person but I
I made Giada DeLaurentis' panettone bread pudding for Christmas last year and my mom said it was better than Grandma's! Which apparently was quite good. Have since made it for other gatherings to only rave reviews.
The good news for you is that for the most part any recipe you chose will be pretty easy and besides you may even find that you actually like the stuff!

1 or 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon

If you like bananas foster- this is a great bread pudding!
this is the sauce recipe that goes with it...
this one has gotten raves and bowl scrapped when I have made it on 2 occasions. It is a Pumkin Bread pudding.
My little touch is to add Jack Daniels to the carmel sauce before I had the cream...a good healthy shot. Dark rum, Grand Marnier (sp) or brandy could work well too
