When we went out to eat, bread pudding was my choice dessert. I eventually found out how it was made and have enjoyed making, eating and serving it since.


  • 2 slices white bread, cubed
  • 2 tablespoons raisins
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 cup evaporated milk
  • 3 tablespoons water
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 egg yolk, beaten
  • 1 tablespoon water
  • 1 tablespoon bourbon, optional


  1. Divide bread cubes and raisins between two greased 8-oz. ramekins or custard cups.
  2. In a small bowl, whisk the egg, milk, water, sugar, cinnamon and nutmeg. Pour over bread mixture.
  3. Bake, uncovered, at 350° for 35-40 minutes or until a knife inserted in the center comes out clean. Cool for 15 minutes.
  4. Meanwhile, in a small saucepan, melt butter. Stir in the sugar, egg yolk and water. Cook and stir over medium-low heat for 4 minutes or until sugar is dissolved and mixture comes to a boil. Remove from the heat; stir in bourbon if desired. Serve warm with bread pudding.
