New Orleans Bourbon Bread Pudding
In the best bourbon bread pudding, a rich custard envelopes the bread with a balance of sweet spiciness and musky Big Easy bourbon flavor.
Why This Recipe Works
We started our New Orleans Bourbon Bread Pudding recipe by tearing a baguette into ragged pieces, which gave the bread pudding a rustic look. We then toasted the bread to a deep golden brown, which prevented the prepared recipe from turning soggy. Once the custard set up in the oven, we sprinkled cinnamon, sugar, and butter on top and let it bake until the topping was caramelized. Then, for a real taste of New Orleans, we drizzled the bread pudding with our warm Bourbon Sauce.
