I'm amused with the grouping of one couple and the third party. I wonder if Princess Diana, Prince Charles, and Camilla indeed like bread pudding. It's funny how the author chose this type of food for this trio.

I absolutely love bread pudding. Can't wait to make it myself!

Bread pudding is pretty much my favorite recipe of all time. I've made it tons of different ways, but never with whipped cream. I'll have to try that!

I would add blueberries

Bread pudding has always been one of my old time favorites but I don't remember ever putting 9 eggs, honey or cream in mine. Are the extra eggs to give it a custardy texture? Personally, I don't think bread pudding needs anything's perfect all on its own, but a little sprinkle of powdered sugar would give it that extra sweetness if you need it, and it looks pretty too!

This recipe is so good! Bread pudding isn't a dessert I get very often, but I totally love it when I do.

Delicious! A little hard on the outside, but the flavor was perfectly caramel-y.

LOVE! The cinnamon comes through but is not overpowering. Toasty crunchy on the outside, delicious goodness inside. A dab of vanilla ice cream would make it perfect. Or . . . maybe rum raisin ice cream? Yum!

This bread pudding had amazing flavor - it tasted like honey and cinnamon to me. I had an edge piece so it was crispy, which really complemented the soft middle. I would make this again!

This tastes just like my grandmother's bread pudding recipe! Warm, sweet, with just a little crunch! I've been looking for a way to replicate it I'm so excited to have a nearly identical recipe!

Whenever it is winter my thoughts turn to Bread and Butter Pudding because it is such a wonderfully comforting and warming thing! I have also made a version with meringue on top and perhaps we will do that next time but this recipe is really very VERY GOOD! We ate every last crumb and the children were licking their lips, lol! Economical too which is always good news right?

Bread pudding is so outdated but it shouldn't be! It is truly delicious, easy to make, uses household ingredients, and is such a unique dish. I especially like this recipe because it uses heavy whipping cream (an ingredient I have in my house that I was looking to use on something new!) Also, I know people are saying the link didn't work but I was able to open up the recipe so I believe it is fixed.

I was very dissapointed when I could not open the link.

I can't open it either!

Bread pudding was a regular favorite in my childhood home and so I was really looking forward to trying out this recipe. Unfortunately, although I have tried numerous times yesterday and today, the recipe simply has not opened for me. I have such fond memories of bread pudding, though, that I will keep my eyes open for more recipes on this site.

why am I not able to get this recipe when forwarded?

I have never had bread pudding. I have always seen it, and wanted to try it, but never have. This recipe popped up in my You Might Also Like section. I thought I would give it a try. I made this yesterday. It is so good! This is easily my new favorite dessert. I am already planning to make this again. It was so easy, too. I did cover my baking pan with foil, but only because I'm lazy and like easy cleanups. )
