This is a dessert sure to disappear off your table. I own a catering company and this is by far the most requested dessert on my menu. I hope you and your family enjoy it as much as my family and customers do!

Need an impressive and easy holiday dessert? Try this bread pudding recipe. It's one of the best we've ever had. The texture is firm without being dry. Adding raisins and pecans gives the pudding texture and adds flavor. The cinnamon and nutmeg are subtle leaving the main flavor from the buttery bourbon sauce. Warm and buttery with a slight bourbon flavor, it's perfect for this bread pudding. This dessert is so good you're going to find excuses to make it again. Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen
