    I've made this amazing bread pudding today...Instead of brandy, I used almond liqueur (Disaronno), and I switched granulated sugar with cane sugar...I added hot tea soaked dried cherries and cranberries too...One of the best things I've ever tasted....

    Miss Paula is the best and I can't imagine her making anything that didn't taste good. A BIG HIGH 5.

    I made this today for our office Christmas party and it was an absolute success! The entire pan was nearly gone and I had so many people asking for the recipe. My husband loved it so much, he vowed to never leave me :) I tweaked it just though. I doubled it and added twice the bread cubes (it looked incredibly soupy even after adding the extra bread). I dusted the wet mixture with cinnamon just before sprinkling the brown sugar/pecan mixture on top. I baked it an extra 5-10 minutes and DID NOT add the sauce. It was moist enough on its own and oh-so delicious!
