Bread pudding is a well-liked cowboy dessert because it is an excellent method for repurposing leftover sourdough bread or biscuits. This recipe makes a deliciously soft pudding with a crisp top and a classic pudding sauce.

Know About Your Ingredients:

For the Pudding:

  • Egg: 2 eggs. Eggs add structure, richness, volume, flavor, and color to a dish.
  • Butter: 2 tablespoons melted butter. Butter is a milk product with a dense consistency. 
  • Vanilla: 2 tablespoons vanilla. Vanilla extract has a floral, sweet, and caramel-like flavor similar to jasmine.
  • Milk: 2 ½ cups milk. Milk moistens, colors and flavors baked foods while adding protein.
  • Sugar: 2 cups sugar. Sugar adds flavor and sweetness to desserts, beverages, and savory dishes.
  • Sourdough bread: 2 cups sourdough bread, cut into 1-inch cubes.
  • Pecans: ⅓ cup chopped pecans. Pecans’ mild, sweet taste and buttery texture make them versatile ingredients.

For Whiskey Sauce: 

  • Sugar: ½ cup sugar. Sugar adds flavor and sweetness to desserts, beverages, and savory dishes.
  • Butter: 1 stick of butter. Butter is made from milk and has a thick consistency.
  • Cream: ½ cup cream. The cream makes baked goods moister.
  • Whiskey: ¼ cup whiskey. Whiskey, an alcoholic spirit, is distilled from fermented barley mash.

Ingredients

  • 2 eggs
  • 2 ½ cups milk
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 1/3 cup chopped pecans
  • 2 tbsp melted butter
  • 2 tbsp vanilla Mexican, if available
  • 2 cups sourdough bread into 1-inch cubes
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 stick butter
  • 1/2 cup cream
  • 1/2 cup  whiskey

Instructions

  • Heat oven to 325 degrees
  • Mix the butter, vanilla, and milk into the eggs. Dissolve sugar thoroughly
  • Put bread cubes into a 9-inch round baking dish. Soak the bread with liquid. Add pecans to the bread and press them in
  • Bake it for 50-60 minutes
  • Mix the other ingredients in a medium saucepan. Stir over low heat until the mixture boils. Pour some over bread pudding servings

Tips

  • You can always add more flavor by making pudding from scratch or using a box mix. You only need a teaspoon of vanilla extract to make any pudding taste luxurious. You can add your preferred liquor to the mix as well. Adding a bit of your favorite liquor to your standard pudding recipe can completely transform it.
  • To achieve a homemade flavor when using a boxed mix that calls for milk, try using evaporated milk or canned coconut milk instead. The pudding will attain a new level of silkiness with these changes.
  • If you’re making something as traditional as pudding, you might be tempted to use a wooden spoon. By whisking the ingredients, you will keep any clumps from forming. The last thing you want in a smooth pudding is to find a lump of flour or cornstarch.
  • Once the pudding has set and is chilling in the fridge, you can stop stirring. Don’t even stir it up before putting it in dessert dishes. Going the pudding more after it’s done will break up the thick texture you worked so hard to make.
