“This is the only bread pudding I have ever made but it is extremely tasty! I love the comice pears but if you cannot find any at your local grocery store you can substitute with 3 Bosc pears since they are smaller. And if you can get your hands on Wolfermans English Muffins by all means get them. it only takes one 4 pack to make this recipe because they are so much bigger than regular english muffins.”
