Tuesdays With Dorie: Bourbon Bread Pudding February 8, 2011

This weeks Tuesdays With Dorie was chosen by Sharon from Simply Southern.  She picked Dorie’s Bourbon Bread Pudding which is located on page 407 in Baking: From My Home to Yours.  I can’t state this enough, I love bread pudding.  Mike always seems to think it takes like French Toast which I guess it does since it is pretty much almost the same way we make French Toast.  But sometimes it matters what type of bread pudding you are having: does in have a bourbon sauce (yummy), is there a baked meringue on top (yummier), and both just make it super yummy.

Dorie’s recipe is just a simple base bread pudding recipe, which I changed up just a bit for my taste and according to what I had on hand.  I only made half a recipe, and I substituted Vanilla Bean Paste for the Vanilla Extract and the Almond Extract.  Since we didn’t have any bourbon in the house….what a shame, really…bourbon is yummy, I substituted Jack Daniels.  I used all non-fat milk instead of whole milk and heavy cream.  Finally, I added 1/2 cup of golden raisins soaked in Cointreau to the recipe, which makes it extra yummy 🙂

This turned out super fantastic.  I wish I would have made a bourbon sauce to go with it but since all the bourbon doesn’t burn off and I am currently sustaining life for myself and my symbiote, I decided that that might be a bad idea and opted for Vanilla Ice Cream (not pictured).
