    Catwhispers's Note:

    This is my all-time favorite bread pudding, at its best still slightly warm from the oven (and I'm not usually one for warm desserts). The orange-flavored meringue makes it extra-special.

    Units: US | Metric

    • 2 cups raisins (dark or light)
    • 2 cups day-old bread cubes (plain, raisin* or egg bread)
    • 1/4 cup brown sugar
    • 1/4 teaspoon salt
    • 2 tablespoons butter (melted) or 2 tablespoons margarine (melted)
    • 1 teaspoon vanilla
    • 2 egg yolks (beaten (reserve whites for topping)
    • 2 cups milk
    • boiling water, for baking


    • 2 egg whites
    • 2 -3 tablespoons granulated sugar
    • 3/4 teaspoon grated orange rind


    1. 1
      Toss the raisins with bread cubes; set aside.
    2. 2
      Combine brown sugar, salt, butter or margarine, vanilla, egg yolks and milk and beat until well-blended. Pour onto bread and raisins, toss to combine, and let sit for 1/2 hour.
    3. 3
      Preheat oven to 350. Grease an 8x8" baking dish, or spray with non-stick spray. You will also need a larger, shallow baking pan.
    4. 4
      Set the larger pan on the oven rack and place the 8x8 dish inside. Fill the outside pan to 1 inch deep with hot water.
    5. 5
      Bake for about 50 minutes, or until just barely firm. While baking, prepare orange meringue.
    6. 6
      Remove pudding from oven and spread with meringue, making sure you bring it to the edges. Return to the oven for 10 minutes or until meringue is lightly brown.
    7. 7
    8. 8
      Beat egg whites until fluffy. Gradually add the sugar, beating until stiff peaks form. Fold in grated orange peel. Spread on baked pudding.
    9. 9
      * If using raisin bread, cut back a bit on the raisins. Also,the original recipe called for 3 tbs. sugar in the meringue, which I found a bit sweet. I cut it down to about 2 1/2 tbs., use your personal taste.

      Heavenly dessert! This was fast to stir together. I didn't have time to let sit for 30 min. but soaked for the time it took my oven to preheat. I ended up not using the whole 2 cups of raisins, about 1 1/2 was enough for my taste.I dusted with a sprinkle of cinnamon upon serving. This reminded me of two of my favorite desserts: rice pudding and sour cream raisin pie. My father in law was VERY impressed, along with my husband. Thanks for making me look good, Catwhiskers.

      All I can say is, oh my, was this good. I made it as posted, and we had it as suggested, still warm. A really nice twist to a familiar comfort food.
