Directions Step-By-Step

1
Begin this recipe by preheating your oven to 350 degrees F. Cut the bread into cubes, about ½ inch each. Place the bread cubes in a large bowl and add the sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, and dash of salt. Add the milk, eggs, and vanilla extract into the bread mixture, mix well. Place ½ of the bread mixture in a casserole dish. Now you can layer the pecans and raisins on top of the bread mixture, if used. Top the layers in the casserole dish with the remaining bread mixture. Bake at 350 degrees F for 30 minutes or until lightly brown. Serve the pudding warm with buttery bourbon sauce.
2
For the buttery bourbon sauce.. In a sauce pan combine all the ingredients. Stir well and bring the mixture to a boil for 1 minute. Remove from the heat and serve warm over bread pudding.

Hi Shyla: Made your bread pudding today. The sauce tasted great, but for some reason, it didn't look creamy like yours does in the picture. Followed the recipe word for word, so I'm not sure what I did wrong! Thanks!
