This is delicious. I don't usually care for bread puddings, but I made this one for my sister who loves them. I will definitely make it again.

I didn't realize I should have filed this under bread puddings, which I really do like. It is very good,as well as quick to prepare,as I always have a supply of bread crumbs in my freezer. Yummy! Yummy!

My husband loves bread puddings. My mother always made it for him. Since she really didn't have a recipe I wasn't able to make it for him since she passed away. So found this and gave it a try last night for dessert. He loved it. He had some for breakfast this morning. Thanks so much, it brought back wonderful memories of my Mom. I have found the best recipes at this site. Keep them coming.

This turned out quit rich and delicious. I usually don't care for bread pudding, but this one was much better than most! I made it for my father and it was a big hit!

This dessert was hard to make but the finished product was so tasty. You need a lot of time when making it. I just love butterscotch so I would make it again.
