    Very good-I never made bread pudding before. Will probably make again, but will use a drier, crusty bread like french instead of the sandwich bread I used.  -  29 May 2007  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    Very nice, used frozen rhubarb. Liked the contrast of sweet and tart. Served with cream and brown sugar sauce if anyone wanted it, very well received.  -  25 Dec 2005  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    I like to find different ways to use my pie plant instead of the "usual" crisps, cobblers and pies. And this recipe is the best I've ever found! I can't say enough for it! It's the BEST!  -  05 May 2005  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
