Ingredients

Bread Pudding

  • 4 cups heavy cream
  • 6 large eggs
  • 2 cup packed dark brown sugar
  • 1 1/2 cups raisins
  • 2 sticks (16 tablespoons) unsalted butter, melted
  • 1 tablespoon ground cinnamon
  • 2 teaspoons ground ginger
  • 2 cups plus 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 2 loaves French bread, cut into 1-inch cubes (about 13 cups)
  • Nonstick cooking spray

Bourbon Sauce:

  • 2 cups confectioners' sugar
  • 1/3 cup bourbon
  • 3 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 1 tablespoon whole milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon

Method

For the bread pudding:

1

In a large bowl, whisk together the cream and eggs. Add the brown sugar, raisins, butter, cinnamon, ginger and 1 cup granulated sugar. Mix well. Gently stir the bread cubes into the egg mixture. Refrigerate for 1 hour.

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F and coat a 9-by-13-inch baking dish with cooking spray.
Pour the bread mixture into the prepared baking dish. If desired, sprinkle the top with the remaining 2 tablespoons of sugar. Bake until a knife inserted into the middle comes out clean, 45 to 50 minutes.

  • I thought you were canceled😢 I’m so happy that you are still on the Food Network😀 However, I am annoyed at them for moving your day and time. My Saturday mornings were not complete until I saw what you were cooking 😋You bring something totally different that the network was missing. Continuous 🙏🏾🙌🏽

  • I have written down and made several of your recipes. I’ve made the pimento cheese spread several times and shared it with others. I’m looking for the Buffalo Style Pimento Cheese recipe from the Jan 31, 2021 show and don’t find it. I could experiment with your basic pimento cheese, but I’m a measure and follow directions cook. Even though I’m allergic to shell fish I love so many of the dishes you cook.

  • I am trying to find your recipe that you made for Nancy when she came to your house. It is the pimento cheese spread you made her with the blue cheese and the egg salad with the bacon. Thank you in advance, love your show.

  • Do you have a hardcover cookbook?? I love many of your recipes and are simple to make. My mom would make everything by scratch, but didn’t write everything down. I have a few great-nieces that are interested in baking and cooking, I am a 5 time cancer survivor and do not entertain and cook like I used to. I enjoy baking and cooking around the holidays and everyone asked for my recipes, but I do not measure, just do it by taste, texture, and color. I was born in 1946 and raised in California all my life, my Mother is from Louisiana, my Father from Texas. I love your recipes, when I saw you Mom using a paper bag making steak fries, it bought back so many many memories of me growing up. I have a 8 year old niece that loves to bake with me. Would love to buy your cookbook for her and myself. Be careful and stay safe. Enjoy .

  • I throughly have enjoyed your shows. The first show I saw was just recently featuring she-crab soup. The recipes you’re using are refreshing. At last some Actual food being prepared for the viewer to make and not some kind of contest! Great job!
