It is wonderful to enjoy on a crisp fall evening or cold winter night.
This dessert offers the right balance of sweet with the addition of the warm spiced rum sauce, and at times, I add just a dollop of vanilla ice cream!
Preheat oven to 350 degrees; (While oven is heating, mix together the wet ingredients in one bowl and the cut up bread in another bowl.)Wet Ingredients:
- 3/4 cup granulated sugar
- 1 tsp ground cinnamon
- 1/4 tsp of nutmeg
- 3 eggs
- 1 cup heavy cream or whole milk
- 1 1/2 tsp Vanilla
- 5 cups bread cut into 1" - 1 1/2" cubes
- 1/3 cup raisins
- 1/4 cup chopped walnuts (optional)
- Butter for greasing baking dish
Spiced Rum Sauce:
- 1 cup heavy cream
- 1/2 Tablespoon corn starch
- 1 Tablespoon water
- 3 - 4 Tablespoons Sugar
- 1/4 cup Spiced Rum
Just before serving, use a fork to put holes into the bread pudding and pour the rum sauce over the top.
