    I'm confused as to how this is getting a five star rating from anyone. Great idea, but it's waaaay to soggy. If your going to make this, take the advice from the person that used a 16 oz loaf of bread AND use much less Kaluha. It was way too strong using a cup. Soggy is an understatement -- if you follow the directions the way they are stated, your bread pudding will be more like an alcoholic bread soup!  -  18 Feb 2002  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    This was the best recipe for bread pudding! I've made it a few times and added extra goodies. I used 16 oz of french bread instead of 8. I found 8 to be a bit too soggy. I used twice as many pecans and added some rasins. I think I may cut back a bit on the Kaluah next time. I also reheated the leftovers in a toaster oven instead of the microwave. It kept the toping crisp.  -  22 Nov 2001  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    This recipe is great!! I double the bread though. Also when I was out of coffee liquor I substituted rum (dark rum works best) but only about 1/2-3/4 of a cup b/c otherwise it is too strong. Make up the rest of the liquid with more milk. Everytime I go to a pot luck I am asked to bring my bread pudding!!  -  05 Nov 2003  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
