Very tasty, even with my experimentation. I used a grain bread that was drying out in the fridge, (white) cooking wine instead of sherry, & for milk I partly used dried milk mix since I didn't have enough regular milk for the recipe. I did sprinkle a touch of salt after reading Debbie's review. Seemed a little mushy, probably because of the type of bread I used, but I still liked it. The cooking times were perfect (1 1/4 hours w/lid 20 mins w/o lid), which is unusual because my crockpot usually cooks faster than what is called for.

I made this recipe for my daughter's pumpkin party (Halloween) so adults could have a nice dessert. This was easy to fix ahead of time - then I turned off the crockpot so the bread pudding would be just slightly warm at serving time(one hour before). I thought it was delicious and it received lots of compliments. The next time I think I'll add a pinch of salt to bring out the sweetness. Excellent! Thanks for the great fall recipe!
