Lemon Bread Pudding Recipe

Lemon Bread Pudding Recipe

Sweet raisins and a smooth hot lemon sauce make this bread pudding extra special. Even today, I get requests for the recipe from people who tasted this traditional dessert years ago. —Mildred Sherrer, Fort Worth, Texas
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 15 min. Bake: 50 min. YIELD:6 servings

Ingredients

  • 3 slices day-old bread, cubed
  • 3/4 cup raisins
  • 2 cups milk
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • LEMON SAUCE:
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 1 cup water
  • 3 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 2 teaspoons grated lemon peel
  • 1 tablespoon butter

Directions

  • 1. Toss bread and raisins in an ungreased 1-1/2-qt. baking dish. In a small saucepan, combine milk, sugar, butter and salt; cook and stir until butter melts. Remove from the heat. Whisk eggs and vanilla in a small bowl. Stir a small amount of the hot milk mixture into the egg mixture; return all to the pan, stirring constantly. Pour over bread and raisins.

Remove from the heat. Stir in lemon juice, peel and butter until butter melts. Serve over warm or cold pudding. Refrigerate any leftovers. Yield: 6 servings.
