    Made this 2x. First time I used stale french bread like other recipes call for (instead of removing the crusts and buttering and toasting). The next time I followed the directions exactly. Wow!!! what a difference. This was the best bread pudding I have ever had. I got so many compliments, and still get asked for the recipe (over a year later). In addition to the whiskey sauce (which is amazing too), I also served it with a vanilla custard sauce. The combo of the 2 sauces pushed it to the next level.

    ****NOTE**** the directions for the whiskey Irish sauce is wrong. You melt the butter and sugar together in the first step, then add the water in the second step. Sugar and water won't carmelize, just reduce into a simple syrup. :)

    We made this for Christmas desert. It was amazing. Somehow the bottle of whiskey was emptied while making it?? Seriously great recipe.
