Have you ever been to O'hana at Disney's Polynesian Resort. Well, if you have, then you know the goodness of the Bread Pudding....but if you have not, I swear to you, it's worth driving there RIGHT NOW from where ever you live :)
So, it makes my mouth water, as I type, but, I thought that it would be sinful if I did not share with you this fabulous recipe.
Now, let me tell you that I tried it, and I am not a "candy boiler" kind of person.....so I burnt it.And when I say I burnt it, I mean that I had to throw the pan away. Not kidding.
So, YOU give it a try, and just invite me over :)
