    1. 1
    2. 2
      Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
    3. 3
      Place stale bread in a bowl with milk and squeeze the bread with your hand until well saturated with milk.
    4. 4
      With an electric mixer on high speed in a separate bowl, beat eggs with sugar until thick and pale.
    5. 5
      Stir in the vanilla, cinnamon, nutmeg and butter.
    6. 6
      Add the soaked bread crumbs to the egg mixture and stir well.
    7. 7
      Let stand for 10 minutes.
    8. 8
      It is important to allow enough time for the bread to absorb the egg mixture or the bread crumbs will float to the top during baking, leaving a layer of custard on the bottom of the dish.
    9. 9
      Transfer the mixture to a greased baking dish.
    10. 10
      Bake until firm, or until a knife inserted in the middle comes out clean, about 45 to 50 minutes.
    11. 11
      Allow to cool.
    12. 12
    13. 13
      With an electric mixer, beat egg yolks until thick and pale.
    14. 14
      In a saucepan, melt the butter and sugar.
    15. 15
      Pour the butter and sugar mixture over the egg yolks, beating constantly with the mixer, until well thickened.
    16. 16
      Stir in bourbon by hand.
    17. 17
      Serve over slightly cooled bread pudding.

      I love this recipe. DH has been making this for years. The pudding is wonderful by itself, but the bourbon really gilds the lily. Great stuff!

      This is a really rich, comfort food. Very easy to make. I did have to use rum in the sauce, I didn't have any bourbon. I will definately make this again. Thanks Kari for the great recipe.
