Irish Soda Bread Pudding W/ Whiskey Cream Sauce

Rose Mary Mogan


I created this recipe using a loaf of Dan's Favorite Irish Soda Bread, (Recipe Posted here) so therefore no additional raisins were needed.

If you use some other bread you may want to add at least a cup or more.

This recipe is just as good if not better than the soda bread. This is my twist on an old classic.

I used unsweetened coconut in this version, as well as nuts and a few other favorites.

At my brother Al's suggestion I chose to bake part of it in a LOAF PAN, instead of a traditional 9X13X2 inch size. I also had enough for a 9 X9 size pan. I had never used a loaf pan before.

How to Make Irish Soda Bread Pudding W/ Whiskey Cream Sauce


  • 1PREHEAT OVEN TO 350 DEGREES F.Cut both breads into 1 inch cubes.
  • 2Spray pans with non stick cooking spray and set aside till needed.The pans I used are 9 X9 inch and the loaf pan is 12"X4 1/2 X 31/4 inches. I used the loaf pan at my brother Al's suggestion just to be different from the traditional.
  • 3Add Bread cubes to large bowl.
  • 4Toss in unsweetened coconut.
  • 5Add Melted butter.
  • 6Add Irish Whiskey.
  • 7Finally add the chopped nuts, and stir with a large spoon to mix all the ingredients together.
  • 8In the mean time to a separate bowl add the 6 eggs, brown sugar and splenda,
  • 9Then measure and add milk to the bowl
  • 10Then add the heavy whipping cream, cinnamon & nutmeg, whisk all of these ingredients together till blended
  • 11Stir in the vanilla and butter extract, and whisk again. I make my own Vanilla by the 1/2 gallon size, so that is what you see in the picture.
  • 12Pour milk mixture over the bread cubes and allow to sit for 30 to 45 minutes to absorb all or most of the liquid.
  • 13After time has elapsed, pour mixture into prepared pan or pans.
  • 14Bake in preheated 350 degrees F. oven for 55 minutes, or until tooth pick inserted in center comes out clean.
  • 15Allow to cool for about 10 minutes then invert onto serving plate. Prepare whiskey sauce and serve over bread pudding. Top with whipped topping if desired.
  • 16Prepare whiskey sauce by melting the butter in a small sauce pan, then when melted add the sugar, whipping cream and whiskey, then whisk briskly to blend, when it starts to simmer, lower heat and allow to simmer about 4-5 minutes until creamy whisking as you go to prevent sticking.Remove from heat add chopped nuts and butter flavoring.
  • 17Serve with bread pudding slices.

Fresh whipped cream is so much better than the stuff you buy in a tub or a can and so easy to make. We prefer to sweeten our whipped cream...
