How to make it

  • For the Soufflé:
  • Preheat the oven to 350° F.
  • Butter an 8-by-4-inch inch loaf pan.
  • Sprinkle the raisins on the bottom.
  • In a bowl, combine 1/4 cup of sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg.
  • Whisk in the egg, cream and vanilla.
  • Add the bread and let stand for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally, until the liquid is absorbed.
  • Spoon the bread into the prepared loaf pan and smooth the top.
  • Bake for 25 minutes, or until golden and set.
  • Let cool slightly, then turn the bread pudding out onto a cutting board and coarsely chop it.
  • Butter a 3-cup ramekin or soufflé dish and sprinkle it with sugar, tapping out any excess.
  • Using a standalone or hand-held electric mixer, beat the egg whites with the cream of tartar until frothy. Increase the speed to high and beat until soft peaks form.
  • Gradually add the remaining 1/4 cup of sugar and beat until stiff and glossy.
  • Put half of the bread pudding in a medium bowl.
  • Fold in one-fourth of the beaten egg whites until just combined.
  • Spoon the mixture into the ramekin.
  • Add the remaining bread pudding to the bowl and fold in the remaining egg whites.
  • Spoon the mixture into the ramekin, mounding it about 1-inch above the rim.
  • Bake the soufflé for 25 minutes, or until golden and puffed.
  • Meanwhile, Make the Bourbon Sauce:
  • In a small saucepan, bring the cream to a boil.
  • Whisk in the dissolved cornstarch and cook until slightly thickened, about 1 minute.
  • Off the heat, add the sugar and bourbon.
  • Return to the heat and simmer over moderately low heat for 1 minute.
  • As soon as the soufflé is done, poke a hole in the center and pour in half of the bourbon sauce.
  • Serve the soufflé at once, passing the extra sauce on the side.
  • You can make the bread pudding base and bourbon sauce a day ahead of time and refrigerated them overnight. Bring both to room temperature before proceeding with the recipe.
