  1. I have heard people say that bread pudding is for the “nursery” but honestly this is one of my favorite desserts. And this version is more sophisticated than the nursery kind.

  2. Can I use fresh pears

    • sure you can but they are more delicate and tender than the dried so they may really fall apart — I suggest cutting them into larger pieces — enJOY!

    Can I use soy or almond milk? Can I cook it on Lowe and for how long?
