For the Bread Pudding:

  • 1 cup raisins
  • 1 loaf French bread, at least a day old, cut into 1-inch cubes (about 6-7 cups)
  • 1 quart milk
  • 3 large eggs
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 2 tablespoons vanilla extract
  • 1/4 cup ack daniels whiskey
  • 1/4 teaspoon allspice
  • 1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 3 tablespoons butter, melted

For the Bourbon Sauce:

  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) butter, melted
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/4 cup Jack Daniels whiskey


  1. Soak the raisins: In a small bowl, combine the raisins with 1/4 cup bourbon. Cover and soak for 1 hour. The raisins should soak up most of the bourbon in this time.
  2. Preheat oven to 350°F.
  3. Soak bread in milk: Place milk in a large mixing bowl and add the bread that has been cut into squares. Press the bread into the milk with your hands until all of the milk is absorbed.
  4. Add the egg mixture: In a separate bowl, whisk the eggs, then whisk in the sugar, vanilla, allspice, and cinnamon.
  5. Pour over the bread and milk mixture.
  6. Add the bourbon soaked raisins and Stir gently to combine.
  7. Transfer to pan and bake: Pour the melted butter into the bottom of a 9×13 inch baking pan. Coat the bottom and the sides of the pan well with the butter.
  8. Pour the bread milk and egg mixture into the baking pan.
  9. Bake at 350°F for 30 minutes until the liquid has set.
  10. The pudding is done when the edges start getting a bit brown and pull away from the edge of the pan.
  11. Make the bourbon sauce: Melt the butter in a medium saucepan on low heat.
  12. Add the sugar and egg and whisk to blend well.
  13. Slowly cook over low heat, stirring constantly, until the mixture thickens enough to coat the back of a spoon, then remove from heat. Do not allow the mixture to simmer or the sauce will curdle.
  14. Whisk in bourbon to taste. Whisk again before serving. The sauce should be soft, creamy, and smooth.
  15. Serve: Serve the bread pudding with bourbon whiskey sauce on the side; pour on to taste.
