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

  • 1Preheat 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.
  • 2In another bowl, mix the eggs, cinnamon, sugar and vanilla. Blend well and then mix with the milk soaked bread. Carefully combine.
  • 3Pour bread mixture into dish with melted butter. Spread evenly.
  • 4Bake for 40 - 45 minutes or until puffy and firm.
  • 5Sauce:

    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.
  • 6Serve sauce over warm bread pudding.


    Delicious!
