"The desserts are divine at Hubbell House in Mantorville, Minnesota....The sweet sauce of this cream pudding tames the dessert's tart raspberry jam." - Midwest Living
This is a tried and true bread pudding. I made a reduced fat and sugar version, cutting fat from 17 to about 2 g. per serving, and reducing calories by about 2/3! I am listing my reduced version beneath the original.
4 cups dried home-style bread or French bread cubes
1 1/3 cups milk
1/3 cup granulated sugar
1 tablespoon butter, melted
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/3 cup seedless raspberry jam or preserves
Whiskey River Sauce (whiskey optional)
Lightly grease two 8 x 4 x 2-inch loaf pans. Place 2 cups of bread cubes in each loaf pan and set pans aside.
In a medium mixing bowl, use a rotary beater to beat together the eggs, milk, sugar, butter, vanilla extract and nutmeg. Pour half of the egg mixture over each pan of bread. Let the mixture stand for 15 minutes before baking.
Bake in a 350 degree F oven for 15 to 20 minutes or till a knife inserted off centers comes out clean. Cool in pans on a wire rack for 10 minutes.
While bread pudding bakes, prepare Whiskey River Sauce.
Remove one of the bread puddings from loaf pan. Place bread-pudding loaf onto a cutting board. Spread jam evenly over the top of the bread-pudding loaf. Top with the remaining bread-pudding loaf. Cut into 6 slices. Place 1 slice on each serving plate.
Serve bread pudding with Whiskey River Sauce.
Whiskey River Sauce (Whiskey optional)
In a medium saucepan, stir together one (14 ounce) can sweetened condensed milk (1 1/4 cups), 1 cup sifted powdered sugar and 1/4 to 1/2 cup whiskey or 1/2 cup orange juice. Add 1/2 cup butter, cut up. Cook and stir the mixture over medium heat till butter melts. Don't boil. Use about half of the sauce for the bread pudding. Cover and chill remaining sauce. Reheat the sauce and serve over pound cake or angel food cake, if you like.
Makes about 2 cups.
One More Bite Bread Pudding (Raspberry)
Reduced Fat and Sugar Version (Still delicious)!!
4 cups bread cubes (firm, such as French)
1/2 cup Egg Beaters® 99% egg substitute
1 1/3 cups 1% low-fat milk (I used soy)
3 tablespoons granulated sugar
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
1/8 teaspoon ground cinnamon (or nutmeg)
1/3 cup sugar-free raspberry spread (or all-fruit spread)
(Whiskey) River Sauce
14 ounces low-fat sweetened condensed milk (or fat-free)
1/2 cup orange juice
1 tablespoon butter
1/2 teaspoon butter flavor
Note that in both the original and reduced versions, only HALF the sauce is used for the bread pudding (with the remainder being saved for later use). Consequently, only half the sauce is calculated in both recipes' nutrition analysis.
