Down Home Bread Pudding
This is definitely a hit at our family gatherings.
3 1/2 cups milk
loaf of stale bread, broken into cubes
1/2 c. margarine
1 1/4 c. sugar
4 egg yolks, beaten
pinch of salt
2 tsp. vanilla
1 cup raisins, soaked in rum
1 can fruit pie filling ( I use apples)
Heat the milk in saucepan. Remove from heat. Add bread. Soak until soft,
but not mushy. Blend the margarine and sugar until creamy. Add eggs, salt,
vanilla, and spices. Add the bread mixture to this. Mix in the raisins and
apples. Pour into a greased casserole dish. Place the casserole dish into a
pan with boiling water. Bake 40 minutes at 350 degrees. Serve with Whiskey
Sauce (below) Whiskey Sauce
Over low heat, melt 1/2 cup butter with 1 cup sugar in saucepan, stirring
often. Add 1 well-beaten egg. Stir. Remove from heat and cool. Add
whiskey (1/4 c. minimum, more for adults!) and 1 1/2 cups heavy cream.
Blend until light and fluffy. Refrigerate 1 hour.
