    VERY GOOD!! My entire family LOVED it!! Everyone was eating seconds. I used cinnamon raisin bread and regular bread. I also added a little more raisins, nutmeg and cinnamon. Also 1/2 eggnog and 1/2 milk. I used this simple recipe for vanilla sauce... Serve this vanilla sauce with bread pudding or any other dessert. INGREDIENTS: 1/2 cup sugar 1 tablespoon cornstarch 1 cup boiling water 2 tablespoons butter 1 teaspoon vanilla extract dash salt PREPARATION: In small saucepan combine sugar and cornstarch. Stir in 1 cup boiling water. Simmer, stirring constantly, for 5 minutes. Stir in 2 tablespoons butter, vanilla extract and salt; blend well. Thank you for such a great addition to my Christmas dinner!!!  -  07 Jan 2006  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    The taste was almost just like 'Momma' use to make it. I find I had to decrease the amount of sugar to 1/2 the the recipe amount.  -  25 May 2001  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    I tried this recipe again for Christmas. I used half eggnog and half milk. Really wish I could say how good it was, but I didn't get any. Family scarfed it up.  -  22 Nov 2001  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
