Bread Pudding


Does anyone have a good recipe for bread pudding?  It's one of DF's favorite desserts and I would like to surprise him with it. 

Can't vouch for the sauce but the pudding recipe works. The best bread to use is a little stale.


    * 1 pound French style bread (the firmer the better)
    * 3 1/4 cups milk
    * 3 eggs
    * 2 teaspoons vanilla
    * 3/4 cup granulated sugar
    * 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
    * 1/4 cup pecans
    * 1/4 cup raisins (optional)
    * Bourbon Sauce, recipe follows

Tear bread into medium pieces. Add sugar and cinnamon. Mix milk, lightly beaten eggs, and vanilla. Add to bread mixture. Place 1/2 mix in casserole. Layer pecans and raisins, if used. Top with the rest of the mix.

Bake at 350 for 30 minutes or until lightly brown. Serve warm with Bourbon sauce (below).

Bourbon Sauce
1 cup granulated sugar
6 tablespoons butter, melted
1/2 cup buttermilk
1 tablespoon (or more!) Bourbon
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1 tablespoon white corn syrup
1 teaspoon vanilla

In a sauce pan mix all ingredients. Bring to a boil for 1 minute. Serve warm.


Bag that butter milk, :-* make it all bourbon. Great stuff! ;D
