Memories of French class in high school

by R. Rebekah , Lawrenceville, GA on Jul. 2009

My french teacher had gave our class a project. The project was for everyone to find a french dish to make and I found this delicious mocha bread pudding. When I brought the dessert in for our french feast day, everyone loved the dessert and my french teacher was very pleased. It was his best dessert and I got an "A"! It was so good that I had to share it w/ my family. My oldest sister of 3 childen going on 4 loves this dessert so much that I had to make it for every family event.

Yummy!! My family just loved this sweet concoction. I gave each piece a dollop of whipped cream, and it was just perfect after dinner. I will be making this recipe again.

We love bread puddings and this is very good. I even make bread pudding doing the summer to use up bread before it goes bad. I sometimes use it for desserts. I will be making this one again.

I HAVE ALWAYS LOVED BREAD PUDDING, BUT USUALLY DIDN'T MAKE FOR MYSELF SINCE THE KIDS AND THE HUSBAND DIDN'T CARE FOR IT. BUT MY HUSBAND ATE THIS AND SAID IT WAS GOOD!!! SO I'LL TRY THIS AGAIN.

My husband loves this recipe.He has always been a bread pudding fan but this adds so much more.

yummy caramel sauce!

by S. SONYA , RICHARDSON, TX on Oct. 2004

I was specifically looking for a caramel sauce to accompany a banana cake I made today. This one turned out easy and wonderful! The amount of evaporated milk needed to make only the sauce is 1/3C or 79mL. I haven't actually made the bread pudding yet, but if it's as good as the sauce that goes with it, wow! I'll be hanging onto this recipe.

My mother used to make the best bread pudding, but this recipe has a much spicer taste. I think the coffee gives it a different taste. Very good.
