Found this on the Internet posted by Thelma McKinney. Both the pudding and sauce are made in the microwave. I am on a diet now but this is here for a reward when I reach my goal! Enjoy!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. For the bread pudding, in a 1 quart casserole, micro-melt the butter for 30-40 seconds.
  2. Add eggs and beat well.
  3. Blend in milk, sugar, raisins, vanilla and salt.
  4. Stir in bread cubes and let stand for 5 minutes.
  5. Gently stir the mixture and micro-cook, uncovered until set, about 5 1/2 to 6 minutes, stirring after 3 minutes.
  6. For the bourbon sauce, in a 4 cup, glass cooking container, stir together the sugar and cornstarch; stir in water.
  7. Cook, uncovered, until thick and bubbly, about 3 minutes. Cook 1 minute more and stir in butter and bourbon or rum. This makes about 1 1/4 cups sauce.
  8. Serve the warm bread pudding with this sauce.

I suppose this evens out for the other review where the reviewer did not make the bourbon sauce. I made the rum version of the sauce, but used a different microwave bread pudding recipe that I had already cooked. The sauce was simple yo make, and great at the time, but later on it had a jello-like texture that must be from too much cornstarch. I saved the recipe and will try to make the sauce again for sure.

Didn't have alcohol so I skipped the sauce...I too, used a 1/2 cup of sugar but I used a 1/4 cup of white and a 1/4 cup of brown...I'll cut back on the sugar a bit the next time...Not as good as baked in the oven but in a pinch when you gotta have bread pudding, this works...

This was good. The recipe didn't say how much sugar to add to the bread pudding. I used a scant 1/2 cup. Instead of raisins, I used dried cherries. I also used fat free half and half instead of milk.
