Description

A sweet and creamy bread pudding.

Ingredients

  • 1 loaf White Bread (French Or Italian), Cubed (1 Loaf Should Yield About 6 Cups Of Cubes)
  • 4 Tablespoons Unsalted Butter
  • 1 cup Heavy Cream
  • 3 cups Milk
  • 3  Eggs
  • 1 cup Brown Sugar, Packed
  • 2 teaspoons Vanilla Extract
  • 1 teaspoon Ground Cinnamon
  • 1 pinch Salt
  • ½ cups Raisins

Preparation

Pour the bread crumbs into a large bowl and set aside.

Melt the butter in a saucepan over low heat. Pour the butter over the bread and toss to make sure bread cubes are coated evenly.

In a separate bowl, mix together the heavy cream, milk, eggs, brown sugar, vanilla, cinnamon, nutmeg, salt, and raisins. Thoroughly mix and pour the cream mixture over the bread, tossing evenly to coat. Allow the mixture to sit at room temperature for 30-40 minutes, or until the bread becomes very soft.

Preheat the oven to 350 F and grease the bottom and sides of a 13 x 9 in. pan.

Pour the bread mixture into the pan and bake in the oven for 30-35 minutes, or until the bread is slightly browned and set. Serve warm and store in the refrigerator.

*Note: use the whole loaf, even if it isn’t 6 cups.

This was wonderful! VERY easy and impressive to serve to a guest who had never tried or even heard of Bread Pudding! It did not disappoint! Served it with some yummy ice cream while it was still warm…we are all going back for seconds now…

We love bread pudding and this is one of the best. I did top it with a whiskey cream sauce and it was perfect. The two of us ate most of it in one day.
