Bread Pudding

Bread Pudding

I have been a long time fan of The Pioneer Woman Cooks. She does good, down home food. Yummy for your tummy. This bread pudding has been on my list to make.

Finally today was the day. I did make a couple of changes. I had a carton of Half and Half that I wanted to use, so I substituted that for the milk. I didn't have sour dough bread, but half a loaf of french bread. I didn't have pecans. (I didn't think this out very well, did I?) Lastly, I didn't have any whiskey in the house. (Where did it go?) I just added some vanilla to the sauce. I wanted to lick the plate. But, I have problems.

Be prepared. Your eyes will roll back in your head, and the only conversation at the table will be 'yummmm' or 'wow'. Or proposals of marriage.

The Best Bread Pudding

2 eggs
2 tablespoons melted butter
2 tablespoons vanilla
2 1/2 cups milk
2 cups sugar
3 1/2 to 5 cups sourdough bread, cut into 1-inch cubes
1/3 cup pecans, chopped finely

Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Beat together eggs, butter, vanilla, and milk. Add sugar and mix until sugar is dissoved. Arrange bread cubes tightly in a nine-inch baking dish, keeping the crust facing up around the edges in scattered within the dish. Pour liquid over the bread. Sprinkle pecans all over and bake for 55 to 70 minutes, or until crust is golden brown all over the top.

Whiskey Cream Sauce:

1/2 cup sugar
1 stick butter
1/2 cup cream
1/4 cup Jack Daniels

Combine all ingredients in a saucepan. Stir constantly over low heat until mixture reaches a low boil. Pour a small amount over the individual servings of bread pudding.

Store leftovers in fridge.

    @janey, Since I moved, my new kitchen has poor lighting which makes horrible pictures. My kitchen in Illinois was perfect for photography. I would love to do more of the photos per recipe...when light permits! I like the step-by-step guides also.
