How to make it
- Coat bottom and sides of 13-by-9-inch baking pan heavily with the butter.
- Tear bread into 1-inch pieces. Mix with raisins in bowl. Lay bread mixture evenly in prepared dish, turning crust side down, as this tends to burn easily.
- In bowl, whisk sugar, milk, whipping cream, vanilla, eggs and cinnamon until blended. Pour over bread mixture.
- Preheat oven to 325 degrees.
- Place baking dish in larger 4-inch deep baking pan. Add water to reach halfway up side of dish. Bake in preheated oven 1 hour.
- Remove from water bath. Let stand 20 minutes.
- Cut pudding into 9 portions and put into large dessert bowls.
- Add a scoop of ice cream next to the pudding, then spoon 3 to 4 ounces of warm praline sauce over the pudding and the ice cream.
- Top with whipped cream if desired. Makes 9 very large servings.
- To make this sauce, it is very important to follow the directions carefully and to use a candy thermometer.
- In large saucepan, heat 1/2 cup of the butter until melted.
- Add pecans and mix well. Bring to a boil.
- Cook until pecans begin to change color. Mixture will foam up.
- Add remaining 1/2 cup cubed butter and mix well.
- This will cool pecan mixture and stop the cooking process. Remove from heat.
- Combine brown sugar, whipping cream and cinnamon in a saucepan and mix well.
- Cook over low heat until blended, stirring constantly. Increase heat and cook until mixture comes to 230 degrees on a candy thermometer.
- Stir in pecan mixture.
- Add sour cream and vanilla and mix well.
- Remove from heat.
- Makes 4 cups.
- Servings at the restaurant are very large. For at home use, the pudding could be cut into 18 portions and the sauce could be halved
