Excellent Bread Pudding with a nice kick!, Member songal

We attended a dinner, a ""low Country boil"". It was a first for me, but great. However the dessert was the ""Bread Pudding"", it was outstanding. One of the gentlemen at the dinner made this and it was great. I would make this for my family. It's a Five star recipe!
