Nancy's StoryI do not normally eat dessert but when in New Orleans and at Bon Ton Cafe it is a "Must Try"
These are original recipes of Alzina Pierce of Bon Ton Restaurant, 401 Magazine Street, New Orleans
loaf french bread
good vanilla extract, you may even want to slice and scrape a fresh vanilla bean
pinch of salt
add whiskey to taste...1/4 cup
could garnish with your choice of toasted nuts
1Pre-heat oven to 375
Melt the butter and set to the side. Soak bread in milk: crush with hands until well mixed. Then add eggs, sugar, vanilla, and raisins, and stir well. Pour butter in the bottom of a thick pan 9x13 should do.
Bake until very firm. Keep checking with a knif after 45 minutes. Let cool, then cube the pudding for individual servings. when ready to serve add sauce and heat under the broiler until slightly borwned. Serve with whiskey sauce, a lot of it! HA!
cream the sugar and egg until well mixed, add melted butter and continue to melt sugar. Add Whiskey to taste
