I thought this was good, but mine did not turn out as fabulous as others. I used a bit less bread, as some talked about, but I felt the pudding was too squishy in the middle when served. It didn't have any texture, just sort of sponge-like. Next time I would prepare exactly as instructed. I also had a hard time getting all the bread and pudding to fit into a 9x13 pan, and would not try to make it all fit. Finally, I didn't feel the caramel sauce was worth the effort. Sorry, but it was no better than a jar of Dove caramel sauce, and next time I wouldn't bother with that.
Overall a good recipe, and well received, but not super out of this world. Will try again though, for sure.
