Quick Stats 

Prep Time: 10 minutes 

Cooking Time: 60 minutes 

Servings: 8 to 10 serves 


  • 1 cup raisins
  • One loaf of French bread, at least a day old
  • 4 cups milk
  • Three large eggs
  • 2 cups sugar
  • Two tablespoons vanilla extract
  • 1/4 cup Kentucky bourbon whiskey
  • 1/4 teaspoon allspice
  • 1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • Three tablespoons butter, melted

For the Bourbon Sauce:

  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) butter, melted
  • 1 cup sugar
  • One large egg
  • 1/2 cup Kentucky bourbon whiskey 

Method to Prepare 

  • Take a small bowl and add raisins and ¼ cup of bourbon whiskey. Cover it and let it soak for at least a couple of hours. Raisins will soak up most of the bourbon in 2 hours. 
  • Meanwhile, preheat the oven to 350°F.
  • Take a large mixing bowl and pour milk. Then, add square-cut pieces of bread into the milk. 
  • Now, press the bread into the milk to soak it. Do it with your hands. 
  • Take another bowl and whisk eggs. Then, add sugar, vanilla, allspice, and cinnamon. 
  • Pour this egg mixture over the milk-soaked bread and add the bourbon-soaked raisins. 
  • Stir everything gently to combine. 
  • Now, pour melted butter into the bottom of a baking pan. Coat the bottom as well as the sides with the butter. 
  • Then, add the soaked bread into the baking pan. 
  • Bake it for around 40 minutes until the liquid is set. 
  • If the edges start to get a bit brown and pull away from the edges of the pan, then your pudding is done. 
  • While your bread pudding is being baked, prepare the bourbon sauce. 
  • Take a medium-sized skillet and melt butter in it over low flame. Add in sugar and egg and give it a good whisk to blend. 
  • Slowly cook it over slow heat, constantly stirring, until the mixture is thick enough. 
  • If the sauce can coat the back of a spoon, then it is perfectly ready. Remove from the heat. 
  • Do Not simmer the mixture, or it will curdle. If your sauce gets curdle, blend it smooth in a blender. 
  • Now, gradually whisk in bourbon according to your taste. Give it a whisk before serving. 
  • Your sauce should be soft, creamy, and smooth.
  • Take out the bread pudding from the oven and serve it with bourbon whiskey sauce on the side. 
  • Serve it warm, and enjoy!
