Whiskey Bread Pudding

 

All of the rain and cold weather that we had last week got us in the mood for some warm comfort food. Bread pudding has a homey feel and taste that makes us think of our grandmother.  It’s a little bit like having a hug in a cup.  We’ve adapted this recipe to put a little extra twist on this traditional winter dessert.   We made a few adaptations to this basic bread pudding recipe that was originally found in the Better Homes and Gardens Cookbook.  Whiskey Bread Pudding fits our blog criteria.  It is easy.  It is tasty.  And because we added a few fresh ingredients, it is fresh.

To make this recipe you need dried bread.  When we plan ahead of time, we save up the ends of our bread and let it dry out on the kitchen counter for a couple of days.  If you don’t plan that far ahead, it’s okay.  You can place bread cubes in a 300 degree oven for about 15 minutes.

In a mixing bowl beat together 4 eggs, milk, sugar, cinnamon, whiskey and vanilla.  Place dry bread cubes in a round baking dish.  Sprinkle dried cranberries over the bread.

Pour egg mixture over all.  Bake in a 325 degree oven for 35-40 minutes or until a knife inserted near the center comes out clean.  Cool slightly.  It’s that easy!

While cooling make the whiskey sauce.  In a small saucepan melt margarine, butter, beaten egg yolk, water and whiskey.  Cook and stir constantly over medium-low heat for 5-6 minutes or until sugar is dissolved and mixture boils.  Remove from heat and stir in whiskey.

Scoop bread pudding into serving cups.  Drizzle whiskey sauce over bread pudding and serve.  Yes, please!  This takes little effort and will delight your guests.
