Kay's notes for this recipe:
While passing through Mobile, Alabama, we ate this delicious Bread Pudding at a famous restaurant. After my husband raved about it, he asked the waitress if she could get the recipe for him. She did and so I now make it.

This is one of two Bread Puddings which I make. Both dishes are comforting yet entirely different.


I have never used 6 bread slices with this recipe, only the loaf french bread. If you should use the sliced bread, please give us a report on this recipe.

Also, in the past, I have added 2 cups of sugar with the eggs and raisins instead of the 1 1/2 cups of sugar. My sweet tooth rules, but both ways are delicious.

Break bread into small chunks and put in a large bowl. Add milk and let soak about 10 minutes; crush with hands until blended. Add eggs, sugar, raisins, and vanilla. Pour butter into a 13 X 9 inch panb. Spoon pudding mixture into pan; bake at 325 for 25 minutes or until pudding is very firm. Let mixture cool; then cut into squares. Place in dessert dishes, and spoon Whiskey Sauce over the top of each serving.

Combine butter, sugar, and half and half in a heavy sauce pan; cook over medium heat until sugar dissolves. Bring to a boil; reduce heat and simmer 5 minutes. Remove from heat. Let cool, and add whiskey. Yield: 1 1/2 cups.

Will do! My dad use to make a bread pudding that is very similar with a whiskey sauce. Recipe must have been in his head, can't be found. Can't wait to try this one.
