    CaliforniaJan's Note:

    While bread pudding was originally developed to make use of stale bread (Cajuns' don't waste anything), it has evolved into its own creamy, crunchy, delicious dessert and is now a much-loved Southern tradition--especially to Cajun and Creole people. Note: Prep time includes standing time.

    Bread Pudding

    Whiskey Vanilla Sauce


    • 1 cup whipping cream


    1. 1
      *Brandy may be used instead of whiskey, if desired. If you'd rather not use liquor, fresh orange juice may be substituted for the whiskey.
    2. 2
    3. 3
      Preheat the oven to 350ºF. Grease a 9 x 13-inch pan with the 1 tablespoon butter.
    4. 4
      Toast the pecans in a dry frying pan over medium heat for 5-10 minutes, or until fragrant (don't allow pecans to burn). Remove from the heat.
    5. 5
      Whisk together the eggs, sugar, vanilla, cinnamon, nutmeg, melted butter and milk until well blended.
    6. 6
      Place half the bread cubes in the buttered dish, top with the chopped pecans, then pour half the liquid mixture over the bread. Add the remaining bread cubes and top with remaining liquid. Cover with plastic wrap and let set for 30 minutes, gently pressing the cubes underneath the liquid a few times to make sure the bread is moistened. Remove plastic, cover with foil and bake in preheated oven for 45 minutes.
    7. 7
      Uncover the pudding, drizzle 1 cup of the warm Whiskey Vanilla Sauce over it, and bake for an additional 5 minutes, uncovered. Let set for at least 5 minutes before cutting. Serve the remaining Whiskey Vanilla Sauce with the pudding.
    8. 8
    9. 9
      While pudding is baking, combine the sugar, cream, spices, and butter in a small saucepan and bring to a gentle boil. When the butter is melted, combine the whiskey, cornstarch, and vanilla in a small bowl, then slowly whisk the whiskey mixture into the gently boiling sauce.
    10. 10
      Boil gently for 5 minutes, stirring often.
    11. 11
    12. 12
      Whip the cream and keep in refrigerator until serving time.

      My family enjoyed this! I made as written except I forgot the whip cream. The amount of Whiskey sauce could have been for 2 and more 13x9 pans. I may reduce the Whiskey amount next time but that is personal preference. Made for ZWT9 Gourmet Goddesses
