How to make it

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees
  • Mix the first 8 ingredients together.
  • Put the bread and butter together in a large bowl and mix lightly.
  • Add the wet mixture to the bread, and let soak for 15-20 minutes
  • Butter a 9 x 13 baking dish or put in muffin cups if you want individual portions.
  • Bake for 45 minutes to 1 hour, depends on your oven.
  • Look for the custard to solidify, and the top to become a light golden brown.
  • If your oven heats hot, you might put your dish in a water bath while cooking, about 1 inch high.
  • You can create any number of variations with this recipe.
  • Add 2 cups of sauteed apples, or some chocolate chips and coconut with nuts, or sauteed bananas.
  • You can make it savory by leaving out the sugar,vanilla and bourbon and adding zucchini and gruyere, or sausages and carmelized onions, any combination you want.

    I never ever considered a savory approach to this dish. It sounds phenomenal!!! I plan on making bread pudding for dessert this Thanksgiving but I wanted to use chocolate doughnuts and chocolate chips with an egg/heavy cream mixture in a water bath for an extra custardy type. Do you think that will work?????

    Hi there MissLionHeart and I'm glad everyone enjoyed the bread pudding. You know, I must apologize because when you mentioned that the sauce didn't have much flavour, I reviewed the ingredients. I have made the correction and instead of "sugar" it is "brown sugar" that I use. You can always add more Whiskey and I also find that Brandy works well!!! Thanks for your kind words. Cheers!!!

    I made this last night for a dinner party. Hubby (a chef) and his brother (also a chef) thoroughly enjoyed it. I'm not sure what went wrong with the sauce, though. Didn't taste of much (maybe needed a drop more whiskey!)

    Thanks, it went down a treat!

    Hi DanErin2
    I appreciate your message and yes, Bourbon and Irish Whiskey are very different! I was in such a hurry when I posted that recipe and I did want to mention the difference between the two. I suppose I had a temporary brain hiccup. I included "Bourbon" for my American friends and Irish Whiskey for my Irish friends. Quite honestly, you can add Brandy or Frangelico or whatever your little heart desires. Frangelico added to this Bread Pudding Recipe is the best!!! It's all up to you ;-)

    This sounds terrific!! Although bourbon and Irish whiskey are VERY different types of whiskey, it would be good made with either. I know - the bourbon version for Derby Day and the Irish whiskey version for St. Pat's! Thanks for posting.

    Lor, you've hit my weak spot with this one! I love bread pudding - without raisin, please - and the addition of the bourbon sauce kicks it up to masterpiece...thanks for sharing your recipe!
