One of my favorite treats when I was growing up was my grams bread pudding. I surprised the family with what I'm calling " Family Bread Pudding ". I took different aspects of mom and grams recipes, added my own touch with the sauce and this delicious bread pudding is what I ended up with.

We just loved it! A real winner to my family.


Enjoy!

How to Make ~ Family Favorite Bread Pudding & Rum Sauce ~

Step-by-Step

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degree F.

    Melt butter in a 9 x 13 baking dish ( I did mine in a 3 quart casserole, which took longer to bake. ) Once butter is melted remove from oven.

    In a large bowl, place bread cubes. Pour milk over the bread and leave set for at least 5 minutes, making sure all bread is saturated. I then toss in the raisins and pecans.
  2. In another bowl, mix the eggs, cinnamon, sugar and vanilla. Blend well and then mix with the milk soaked bread. Carefully combine.
  3. Pour bread mixture into dish with melted butter. Spread evenly.
  4. Bake for 40 - 45 minutes or until puffy and firm.
  5. Sauce:

    Whisk together the milk and corn starch in a small bowl and set aside.

    In a small saucepan, over medium heat, melt butter and stir in sugar and rum. Bring to a boil.

    Slowly stir in the milk mixture and continue cooking until thickening. It will thicken further as it cools.
  6. Serve sauce over warm bread pudding.


    Delicious!
