Ingredients

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!

    WOW!!! You could have posted just the Bourbon sauce and had a winner. It sounds so good. I love your bread pudding too... Putting the extra Bourbon in the sauce would really kick it up... Nice Job sweetie.... Jim
