This was overall a good recipe. It is almost as good as one with heavy cream real butter and a long baking time. You do need to mix a little of the hot milk mix with the egg to avoid bits of cooked egg. I also had bits of hard dry bread on the top like maybe I used too much? I also made a quick sauce of caro syrup maple syrup some spiced rum and some butter which I poured over the top. This helped with the dryness. I will absolutely make this again. Read More

This tasted ok while it was still warm out of the microwave but it was too thick. The recipe calls for too much bread. I know micro times vary but I cooked this on med heat for 15 min and it was too dry and overdone. The next day I tossed it--it was just too dry. Read More

This is very easy as I always have a loaf in the feezer. Quick to make when unexpected guest drop in. I would suggest that the lass who had bits of uncooked egg through the dish she take a spoon full of the hot mixture mix it in with the egg before adding the egg. This witth stop that problem Read More

This recipe is great for a quick "southern comfort" dessert. I made a few adjustments based on what was in my pantry and the suggestions others made: 1.) I cut back the number of bread slices to 12 because I like more of a "custard" based bread pudding. I used Ezekiel frozen cinnamon raisin bread that I toasted a little to thaw and the taste was wonderful 2.) I used half brown sugar/half white sugar for the sugar and cinnamon sprinkled over the cubed bread. Next time I'm going to try just 1/4 c brown sugar with the cinnamon because it was a little too sweet. 3.) Instead of raisins I used dried blueberries. They have so much flavor and made for a nice tart contrast to the sweet bread. 4.) I used my corning ware with a glass lid instead of plastic wrap in the microwave. I served it with homemade whipped cream and my guests finished the entire dish. Thanks for the great idea of making this yummy classic in the microwave. Read More

Made this for a girls' night and it was a big hit. My roommate warned me not to make it anymore because it just put him in a coma. Read More
