    Jostlori's Note:

    "Arrrg, mateys! Tis treasure ye seek, then Caribbean treasure ye will find in me proud beauty of a pudd'n!" This is a pirate's take on bread pudding, created for the Raiders of the Lost Pantry cooking contest. I think this would taste equally good if candied orange peel were to be substituted for the candied ginger (or maybe both!). I purposely made it a small yield recipe so that I could play with it without wasting a large pan of bread pudding, but it probably doubles or triples well, as do most bread puddings. Be sure to save the syrup from the candied ginger, as it makes a most amazing addition to many things, including pancakes, cocktails, and ice cream. YUM! You can save time by using store bought candied ginger. Cook/Prep time doesn't include drying time for the candied ginger.

    FOR GINGERED RUM RAISINS (divided use)




    1. 1
    2. 2
      Place ginger slices in small heavy saucepan and add the sugar and water.
    3. 3
      Bring to a boil, then reduce heat and simmer for 30 minutes until ginger is tender and liquid is a bit syrupy.
    4. 4
      Drain ginger (save the syrup, it's wicked good!) and dredge the slices in sugar. Set on rack to dry completely. To speed things, a 250 degree oven works.
    5. 5
    6. 6
      In a small non-metal bowl, combine julienned ginger and rum. Let steep for one hour. Add raisins, honey & sugar and set aside for at least 15 mintues.
    7. 7
    8. 8
      Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
    9. 9
      In a bowl, combine the beaten eggs with the sugar, honey, salt, vanilla and 2 Tbsp liquid from the Gingered Rum Raisins. Whisk to combine.
    10. 10
      Add the two milks and the melted butter. Whisk to combine.
    11. 11
      Butter a ceramic baking dish or loaf pan. I used a 2 cup 7x5 Le Creuset Classic Baker. Add half the bread cubes.
    12. 12
      Sprinkle 1 Tbsp rum raisins and 1 Tbsp minced candied ginger over the bread cubes. Add the remaining bread cubes.
    13. 13
      Carefully pour milk mixture over the bread cubes. Gently push the cubes down into the liquid so it begins to absorb evenly. Set aside for 15 minutes.
    14. 14
      Bake for 40-45 minutes or until the edges are lightly browned and the pudding is set. Center will still be a bit jiggly.
    15. 15
      Serve warm or cold. To serve, top each portion with some of the reserved Gingered Rum Raisins and candied ginger. Drizzle honey over the top (it helps to warm the honey so it will drizzle lightly).
    16. 16
      OPTIONAL: add a very,very light sprinkle of FRESHLY ground nutmeg over the top. Don't use pre-ground (yuck!) --.
    17. 17
      A scoop of homemade vanilla bean ice cream takes this over the top!

      Delicious and each of the layered flavors were stellar. I thought the recipe was a creative use of contest ingredients! I enjoyed making my own candied ginger and thought that inclusion transformed the recipe into gourmet. I used french bread and did use the fresh nutmeg. The bread pudding was creamy. I'll definitely be making this again! Good luck in the contest!

      My dh & I have never tried bread pudding before and weren't sure what to expect. We loved it. I used chinese coconut bread and bought candied ginger. I also added a little candied orange peel as suggested. It was so good, rich and creamy with a great ginger flavor. The gingered rum raisins were awesome, they tasted fantastic. I did garnish with a drizzle of warm honey and ginger rum raisins. Really creative use of the contest ingredients. Good luck in the Contest.
