DIRECTIONS

  • Using the first 12 ingredients (from bread cubes down to confectioner's sugar) prepare the bread pudding by following the steps below:
  • Preheat oven to 350 ℉. Grease a 9x13 inch baking pan with the butter. Set aside.
  • Place the bread cubes in a large bowl.
  • Combine the cream, milk, eggs, brown sugar, vanilla, cinnamon, nutmeg, salt and raisins in a large bowl. Stir to combine and then pour over the bread cubes. Allow to sit at room temperature for 30 to 45 minutes.
  • Transfer to the prepared pan and bake until the center of the pudding is set, 50 to 60 minutes.
  • Garnish with the confectioner's sugar and serve with Rum Sauce - directions below:
  • In a one quart saucepan over medium heat, combine the cream milk and sugar. Place the cornstarch and 1/4 cup of the rum in a small bowl and whisk into a slurry.
  • Pour the slurry into the cream sauce and bring to a boil. Once the sauce boils, reduce the heat to a gentle simmer and cook, stirring occasionally for 5 minutes.
  • Remove the sauce from heat. Stir in the salt, butter, and remaining 1/2 cup of rum. Serve warm.
