      there are a couple of ways to save this when there is no button to put in your recipe file either bookmark the page to your favorites or highlight the page and copy and paste it to your clipboard file then delete out what you don’t want then print it off .ty

      • harvey melton says

        I highlighted this page and copied it then I went to my yahoo mail page where I could then paste it into a new ”notepad” file, I put in the title pasted it, the only thing pasted into the new file was the recipe and nothing else. easy then I saved it for future reference and in this way I could print it out when needed.

    • Bruce Walters says

      or go to tools menu, press print preview to loose the unwanted pages and press print page for the page you need…or press control P you will print all paged in the que

    • Taterbug says

      If you check the buttons to like or share you will find the last button is print. I couldnt quite make out what it was so I tried it and just printed a copy. Hope this helps. I didn’t get any junk pages all I got was recipe in printer format. I’m talking about the second set of buttons. T.


    I am like Julius and Peggy I love this recipe, but not the junk I have to print just to get the recipe. Please fix this as I love this site.

  2. Barbara says

    To print the recipe, you left click and scroll down the recipe – the recipe will be blue highlighted. Go to File in the upper left corner, click on print. When the print page comes up. bullet “selection” – not all – then hit enter and your recipe will be all that is printed.

  3. Arlene says

    I was able to print out the first 2 pages but an error message came up on the 3rd page so the 3rd page wouldn’t print, It wasn’t any problem to write out instructions 5., 6., and 7.
    I look forward to trying this recipe as I lost my recipe for bread pudding.

    Thankyou for a simple recipe

  4. dearcat from Maine says

    To print a recipe , without all the junk, do the following: Highlight the recipe portion only, then go to Edit, copy. Then go to Compose email, enter your email address, then go to the message box, go to edit and hit paste. The recipe will appear in your message box. Then send. You have just the recipe ready to print. PS I use a little nutmeg in this recipe.

  5. Bill says

    1) Highlight and COPY
    2) PASTE to Word
    3) Highlight pictures and/or unwanted text, individually and CUT.
    4) If double-spaced you may be able to put cursor at the end of each line and DELETE. This may work and save space.
    5) You may not be able to CUT the video. If not, COPY heading and PASTE on a new page.
    6) Then COPY ingredients and PASTE under heading.
    7) You should have recipe on one page without all the frills. Then PRINT that page.
    8) The PRINT instructions have more steps then the recipe.

  6. Dee says

    If you click on File and Print Preview you can see how many pages will print. Just choose only the ones you want and print. This way you do not have to print all 8 pages.

  7. From Ohio says

    Nowhere, recipe or instructions says anything about butter. Until you watch the video to drizzle with butter. Okay, how much melted butter do I drizzle? Looks like about 1/2 cup?

  8. Darlene says

    On printing the recipe and all the extra garbage you have to print out. My printer has print preview so that it shows how many pages it will print. this recipe said there was 8 pages. Only the first 3 contain the recipe so I just print out the ones that I need. Walla no garbage

  9. Avery says

    In response to “From Ohio”, the video says at the bottom of the screen to use 1/2 stick butter when she drizzles it on.

  10. marcy fleck says

    On the Video the foil was left on, but usually when covered with foil the item does not “brown”. Do I take the foil off just before it is done? Thank you!

  11. Donna says

    I love your recipes, but the only problem is that i cannot print them out. you have no place on your recipes to print out these recipes, and you have to make these pages shorter, they are to long to print out. thank you Donna Heller

  12. Clarissa says

    I have found that if I highlight the recipe “as is”, copy and paste it into my word file, then it takes less than a minute to delete the picture boxes, the blank spaces then you have a perfect recipe without getting all the garbage.

  13. Lee says

    Not only do you need to set up a print button without all the garbage. You need to double check your recipe.
    You left the 1/2 cup of melted butter off the printable recipe.

    • cheryl kulick says

  14. SW says

    Copy and paste in Word…or grab a pen and paper and copy it the old-fashioned way. Would take less time than writing in a complaint. I’m just saying…

  15. Mildred says

    I have a recipe folder in my documents section of my computer. There I have different folders with-in the recipe folder. I click on file, save as, text file, the click save in what ever folder I want it in. then I can go in and cut out any and all stuff I want cut; Print if I want or fix i any way I please. Love it! Have saved thousands but can find one in about 5 minutes. Same as looking it up in a regular cookbook.

  16. Bonnie Blarek says

    Yes, it woul be great to get just the recipe and not all otherthing that you need not to print. Have a friendly version. Thanks

  17. Jeannie says

    When you want to print a recipe:
    Put your cursor at the top, hold left side of mouse down as you move it down the recipe. It will be highlighted, then right click and click copy. Then open up you note pad and click in there.Right click, then hit paste. Then go up in left corner hit the file button, it will open up, click on print.

  18. says

    Would you have the recipe for the sauce that some people pour over the bread pudding? This is one of my husbands favorite desserts and I can never find a recipe with the sauce. Thanks for your help.

  19. Anita Raymond says

    For Barbara Miller: Warm butter sauce… 1 stick butter, 1/2 cup sugar, 1/2 cup brown sugar, 1/2 cup half & half. Melt butter, add sugars and half & half. Stirring with a whisk, bring to a boil. That’s it ! !

  20. Pat Cody says

    As some others have noted, the butter shown being poured over in the video is not mentioned in the recipe. How much butter? Also, the recipe says a 9×13 pan howver the video clearly shows a round baking dish. You’d think the video associated with a recipe would follow the printed recipe as written.

  21. Sharon says

    I love this recipe. Excellent. And for the lady who complained that you can’t print it out, and for the one who said you have to print all this other junk on the page; just cut & paste the recipe into your word program. Hellllllllll-O

  22. sharon says

    I copy & paste to an email and send it to myself..then when it comes in the email I just add it to my saved recipe folder.

  23. LEONIE BILYK says

    I do not find butter being included in your recipe.
    Please follow-up with my querrie because I would
    love so much to make this pudding. Thank you.

  24. Dennis Ryan says

    I would like to double this recipe and make it in a small-sized Nesco for a 30-people-ish crowd potluck. But to do this, I would have to make it the night before, refrigerate it overnight (instead of for the stated “at least two hours,”) and bake it in the Nesco once I got to the potluck venue the following day which is about an hour’s drive away. I could get there early, plug the Nesco in at the potluck, and bake it in the Nesco as per the recipe directions. Would this plan work, do you think?
