I don't know what it is with grandmas and bread pudding. But, when I have a grandma over for dinner and say I have bread pudding I see a big smile on their face. Just going to grandma's and giving her a tupperware of bread pudding puts you in the Will for sure. Now that I"M a grandma, I can't say I'd turn down this delicious bread pudding either. Make this for your Easter Brunch...or your favorite grandma.


chop 8 cups (2 average sized loaves) raisin bread
put in large bowl. (if you don't have a day to harden the bread then chop it up and put it on a cookie sheet and bake for 10-15 minutes at 250 preheated. cool before using
9 beaten eggs
2 1/4 c milk
1 3/4 c heavy whipping cream
1 stick melted butter
1 tablespoon vanilla
1 tablespoon cinnamon
1 c sugar
1/4 c packed brown sugar
1 1/2 c raisins
1 c sugar
1/4 c water
2 teaspoons lemon juice
2 tablespoon butter room temp
1 c heavy whipping cream

Directions Step-By-Step

In a large bowl, whisk together everything EXCEPT bread and raisins. Now add bread and raisins and toss until thoroughly blended.
Pour in GREASED lasagna pan (a little bigger than a 9x13). Bake in preheated 350 degrees oven UNCOVERED for 45 minutes. Let stand 5 minutes before cutting.
Drizzle with caramel sauce. (Put sauce on as it's dished out, not on the whole pudding.)
CARAMAL SAUCE: In saucepan combine sugar, water and lemon juice.Bring to a boil. Turn down to medium heat and cook until mixture turns an amber color. Add butter and stir until melted.
Slowly add cream. Stir.
Drizzle over a serving of bread pudding...or just drink it directly from the pan. Don't burn yourself! Okay, I'm seriously. If you want you can add a scoop of vanilla ice cream on the bread pudding and then drizzle it all in caramel sauce.
NOTE: If grandma doesn't mind, you could add 1 cup of finely chopped walnuts or pecans when you add the raisins. I don't use nuts because my husband's grandmother takes her teeth OUT before she eats...go figure.

I would because raisin bread doesn't have a whole lot of raisins and I like lots of raisin. But, it won't change the recipe if you do or don't add raisins. Maybe you could add some cranraisins with the raisins in the raisin bread to kick it up a notch. Mery Christmas!

Do I use raisin bread AND add the extra raisins called for?
