Bread Pudding

24 Sep

I love bread pudding, even the soggy somewhat tasteless pudding at the cafeteria at the hospital. I can remember working the night shift and this tasted so good in the middle of the night. 

I found this recipe on Pioneer Woman.   It is amazing and much better than the soggy stuff at the cafeteria.  It is so pretty and has a very strong vanilla taste and I love vanilla.  A good friend of ours Spence Packer had heart surgery,so it gave me the excuse to make this.  It is definitely not Weight Watchers approved and I do not even want to think about how many points this would be.  But if I am going to fall off the wagon, this is how I want to go.  Talking about falling off the wagon, the Whiskey sauce that Pioneer Woman serves with this is evil.  It may not have been the best thing to take to a General Authority’s son.  I hope he is not visiting tonight when Dave delivers this.  I do cook it for an extended time to get the alcohol out, but there is still definetly the taste.  But one good thing,  I am sure that Spence does not know what whiskey tastes like!!!!!


1 Loaf of French Bread

2 eggs

2 TBS vanilla

2 TBS melted butter

2 1/2 cups milk

2 cups sugar

1/3 cups finely chopped pecans

Preheat oven fot 325 degrees.  Beat together the eggs, milk, butter, vanilla and sugar..  Cut the bread into 1 inch cubes.  Leave the dark crust facing up around the edges. 

Pour the egg mixture over the bread.  Push the bread down with your fingers to saturate each bread piece with the egg mixture.  Just  want to know whose stubby fingers those are!!!     Sprinkle the finely chopped pecans over the bread and let it set for about an hour prior to baking. 

Bake at 325 degrees for 55 to 70 minutes until lightly browned and set in the middle.  Serve warm or cold, with ice cream, whipped cream, whiskey sauce or a combination of any of the above. 


1/2 cup sugar

1 stick butter

1/2 cup heavy cream

1/4 cup Jack Daniels Whiskey

Combine all ingredients and bring to a low boil.  Boil for 5 to 10 minutes to cook off alcohol..  Serve over bread pudding.
