Doesn't Work

I was excited to try this recipe, as I have never tried bread pudding in the crock pot. I assumed that since the recipe was posted here, it was correct. WRONG. The numbered directions say "3-4 hours on low". It's been in for 3 hours and hasn't even started to cook through. I came back to the recipe on the site and realized that at the top it says "Time on high: 2 hours Time on low: 3-4 hours". No wonder. I gave the whole thing a stir, since the bread on top was extremely dry (because it didn't get to sit in the custard overnight like a traditional pudding), and let it go. Hopefully I didn't just waste a whole loaf of good bread. I so wish this had worked! :-(

Most recipes can be accommodated in a slow cooker that is either one quart smaller or one quart larger than specified. If using a smaller sized slow cooker, please use caution when preparing your meal to prevent over filling. For smaller sauces and dips that call for 3 quarts or less, it is not recommended to alter the unit size.
