I usually only seek out recipes with very good ratings and this one had no rating at all.... However I had so many left over bread cubes from another recipe that I was looking to use them up and I decided to take a chance and try this. It's pretty good although I think the recipe instructions are a bit poorly written in some parts. In the beginning I wasn't sure if I was doing this right. In any case this has a nice chocolately flavor and is not too sweet (which I liked). It is definitely easy and was a good way to get rid of some leftover bread. I prefer it warm so I after it had baked and cooled I just pop the portions in the microwave for a few seconds and it tastes very nice. All in all this was pretty good! Read More

I wouldn't make this again. Both my husband and I didn't care for the nutmeg in this -- I would have just preferred cinnamon. Also simple bread pudding is much more delicate and tasty - and easy to make. Read More

i really enjoyed using this recipe as a base for a chocolate bread pudding. i used 1/3c semi sweet chocolate chips and only used 1/4c sugar in with the cinnamon and nutmeg. i didnt do the water bath either instead i covered with foil and still came out great! i topped mine with a small scoop of ice cream and it tasted wonderful! this is has a great flavor and is for any chocolate lover out there!!! try it tonight.

Very flavorful. Not too moist or too dry but I can't rate on that factor as I didn't use the waterbath or cooking bag (too much work). I just put it in a loaf pan with foil on top. I would make this again but still would not use the bath and would add a little more chocolate (love chocolate). Did not have the walnuts so used almonds -- very good. Read More

I was surprised this recipe has a 4 star rating. It tasted like some kind of odd and not good tasting french toast and not like a bread pudding nor does it have any sort of custard texture. My 6 & 7 year old would not even get past a 2nd bite and both said they didn't like it. That is a good indicator I'd say and I agree. Read More

Really good bread pudding..... Don't be afraid of using the cinnamon and nutmeg. It adds to the flavor and doesn't overpower. I added 1/2 a tsp of almond extract as well. Moist light chocolate flavor. I put my bread pudding into a small circular baking dish and then put that into a water bath to try and keep it moist while cooking. Read More
