How to make it
- Bread Pudding:
- Butter a large casserole or baking dish - think a bit larger than 9" x13". I use a 10" x 14" glass casserole for this.
- Whisk first 7 ingredients in medium bowl. (first 6 ingredients IF you are not adding the bourbon to the custard base)
- Place bread and pecans in prepared dish. Pour milk mixture over and let stand 5 minutes. Push down bread into custard.
- Refrigerate 2 hours, pushing bread into custard occasionally.
- Preheat oven to 375°F.
- Place bread pudding in baking pan. Place that dish in a pan that's bigger than the pudding pan - I use my turkey roaster.
- Carefully add enough boiling water to baking pan to come 1 inch up sides of dish with bread pudding. You do not want to water the pudding with boiling water (not good), so use a kettle with a spout, so you can control that boiling H2O.
- Bake until pudding is puffed and golden brown on top, approximately 65 minutes. Remove dish with bread pudding from water and cool slightly.
- Cut into squares. Serve bread pudding warm with sauce.
- Bourbon Sauce:
- Melt butter in small saucepan over medium heat. Whisk in remaining ingredients. Simmer until thickened, whisking often, about 6 minutes.
- Cool slightly.
- Dust with confectioner's sugar to make it look beautiful.
- Serve and get ready for much praise and adolation. Yayyy!
