My husband and I visited New Orleans for the first time in November. Even though we had not eaten at Mulate's while we were there, I found this recipe and wanted to make it for Christmas brunch. It was very easy to throw together in the morning, about an hour or two prior to baking. It took a little longer to cook than I thought it would (I was using my microwave/convection oven on the convection bake setting, and I had kept it covered in foil until 10 minutes before it should have been done which may have slowed the cooking). Made the rum sauce, which I served in a gravy bowl. It was loved by all the guests.
I must admit, I've never had bread pudding before. That said this was delicious. As you can see from the one photo, I cut the recipe in half (only two of us) & DH's side had the raisins. I love grapes but have never liked raisins. I followed the recipe exactly & it came out of the oven at 45 min. Sat for 15 to 20 minutes while I made the butter-rum sauce & then was devoured, at least half of it. The other part went into the frig to see what it tastes like after it chills (for a day or two, too many calories for twice in one day.) Thanks for a great recipe. Now I'll have to try bread pudding again & see how it compares. DH, by the way, has had it before & said this was out of sight. Made for ZWT5 Zingo.
I love bread pudding. This takes a little over an hour to cook though. Next time I will soak the raisins in a little rum too. made for ZWT 5 Zingo.
This was made for lunch then I got called into work early so had to pass on the rum sauce !! Even w/out it was a terrific bread pudding . I used up fruit buns in it and sprinkled it with cinnamon sugar. It did take a long time to cook - a good hour - but my oven runs cold. Thanks for posting - made for Zingo !!
I made this for DH since I don't like bread pudding. I totally messed up and forgot to add the sugar DUH. So made a white chocolate sauce to add sweetness along with the rum sauce. I used Brugal rum from the DR. Even with my goof he loved it. Made for ZWT Zingo for team Zaar Chow Hounds
