      This does sound good. Bread pudding is one of my favorite desserts but my efforts in the past to make have not been good! Maybe I can finally make good bread pudding with this recipe. Thanks. ;-)

      BKCreative, what's so good about apples is that if you want your bread pudding with a little tartness, then use tart apples or sweeter apples if you just want all that sweet goodness, use a sweeter apple. Any way, it's will be delicious.

      I'll have to make it for my husband. He loves bread pudding and I do make it for him. I don't like it I don't know why it's just one of those things I don't like.

      When I make I'll have to taste some maybe your bread pudding will change my mind.

      Moonlake, I wasn't a fan of bread pudding when I was a little girl, but now, making this one, I devour it. Yes, you should give it a try. Bon Appetit!

      I will have to do this pudding soon. Sounds great. Have you ever tried using stale cinnamon rolls instead of bread, or even stale doughnuts for that matter? Works great.

      Thanx laringo

      C-it's me!

      No I haven't, but that is so smart, There is nothing worst than a stale cinnamon role or donut. Now I know what to do with them. Thanks for the tips. Anything you can add to a Hub is always a plus as far as I'm concerned.

      i can't wait to try this but my family won't eat the raisens - do you think it will make a difference if I leave it out?

      No, the bread pudding flavor alone will by not adding the raisins be a problem at all. Go for it!
