Bread Pudding

What could be better than warm bread pudding with buttery rum or whiskey sauce on a cold day?

 

Bread Pudding:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees or 330 if convection

2 cups milk
2 Tbsp butter
1/3 cup sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp nutmeg
1/4 tsp clove
2 eggs beaten
6 slices of bread cut into 1″ pieces
1/3 cup raisins or dried cranberries

Butter a 2 qt. square baking pan.

If the bread is frozen heat it in the microwave until warm.  Heat stale bread in the microwave with a damp paper towel.  Soft bread soaks up the pudding mixture.

Place bread pieces in pan and mix cranberries in.

Heat milk, butter and sugar in saucepan on medium hear until butter melts. Add vanilla, cinnamon, nutmeg and clove. When mixture has cooled add the two beaten eggs.

Pour milk mixture over bread. Bake for 40 minutes or until set. For convection check at 30 minutes to see if set.

Serve with Whiskey or Rum Sauce. Reheat leftover pudding and sauce in the microwave.
