How to Make Our Famous Bread and Butter Pudding


  1. To prepare pudding, mix the bread, cream, butter and vanilla in a large mixing
    bowl. Let stand for 10 minutes. Bring water to a boil in pan. Pour over raisins
    in medium heatproof bowl. Beat the eggs and sugar at medium high speed in mixing
    bowl for 5 minutes or until thick. Add to the bread mixture and stir to mix.
    Stir in the raisins. Pour into a 9 x 13 inch baking dish sprayed with nonstick
    cooking spray. Bake at 350 for 45 to 60 minutes or until pudding is golden brown
    and slightly set. Remove from oven and cool on a wire rack. Chill in
    refrigerator for 24 hours before serving. To make the Crème anglaise, bring
    cream just to a boil in a pan over medium heat. This usually takes 3 to 5
    minutes. Remove from heat. Beat sugar and egg yolks at medium high speed in
    mixing bowl for 3 minutes or until thick. Add cream gradually, beating
    constantly at low speed. Return the mixture to th pan. Cook over medium heat for
    5 to 7 minutes or until mixture begins to thicken and coat the back of a spoon,
    stirring constantly. Cool in refrigerator for 1 hour. Stir in the vanilla and
    return to the refrigerator until ready to serve. To serve, warm the bread
    pudding in the oven or microwave. Cut into square and drizzle with the crème
    anglaise. Note: This recipe received BEST DESSERT IN SAVANNAH at the Taste of
    Savanna, 2002.
