I've died and gone to bread pudding heaven!
Delicious! I made this tonight and I don't want to stop eating it! I live in Mazatlan, so I love anything flan-like and this fit the bill. I used a crusty Mexican bread instead of whole wheat, added a handful of raisins, and since we love nutmeg, used 1/4 teaspoon instead of 1/8th and added an extra tablespoon each of butter and sugar to carmelize with the pears. This was incredible! I look forward to trying it with apples and using cinnamon instead of nutmeg. Or maybe pineapple and brown sugar and make an upside down pineapple bread pudding. YUM! But, I'll always go back to the pear version. Excellent.
Pros: easy to make, impressive, delicious!
Cons: It takes a while to prepare, though it's easy.
