Bread Pudding with Warm Butter Sauce

Friendie and I made up a triple batch of Bread Pudding the other day.  He is a lover of the bread....before it is baked....afterwards...not so much.

Bread Pudding can be made from any bread, but I have discovered THE BEST  I have ever made comes from my Honey Oatmeal bread.

(I was SO SURE that I had posted my recipe for Heavenly Honey Oatmeal Bread....but I have just searched my blog....nope...I didn' I will post it at the end of this blog entry.)

Bread Pudding

2 large eggs, beaten
2 1/4 cup milk
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp nutmeg
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 tsp vanilla
1/4 tsp salt

Beat above ingredients together.  Pour over 2-3 cups diced bread cubes in greased 1 1/2 quart casserole.
Stir in 1/2 cup raisins (my family prefers I omit raisins)

Set casserole in pan with 1" boiling water.
Bake at 350 degrees for 1 to 1 1/2 hours or until knife inserted 1/3 way to center comes out clean.

Butter Sauce

1 cup sugar
1/2 cup butter
1/2 cup cream
1 tsp vanilla

Stir together -- boil -- reduce heat and stir for 3 minutes.

Heavenly Honey Oatmeal Bread

1 cup quick cooking oats
2 cups boiling water
1 pkg dry yeast
1/4 cup warm water
1/3 cup honey
1 Tbsp oil
2 tsp salt
1 egg, beaten
5 1/2 cups flour

Place oats in large bowl and pour boiling water over....let stand 15 min.
Dissolve yeast in 1/4 cup warm water...add honey, oil, salt, yeast and egg to oat mixture.  Stir in flour - knead dough 2 minutes (I use my mixer).
Cover and let rise 10 min. then knead 12-15 strokes.
Place in a greased bowl - cover and let rise until doubled.
Punch down.
Divide dough.
Shape loaves.
Put in greased pans.
Let rise until doubled.
Brush with milk and sprinkle with oats.
Bake at 350 degrees for 45 min.
Remove from pans and cool on wire rack.

This bread has become a favorite for me because my Kitchenaid mixer does all of the work.....a real time saver....and really great results!

There is still time to get in on my quilting book give-a-way....just scroll down to the give-a-way post and sign up!

Bread Pudding has always been a BIG favorite of mine. I reminds me so much of my grandmother...she made the best! And you HAVE to have the raisins!

Everything is wonderful with butter sauce! I think it could even be poured over graham crackers. We love bread pudding and I will have to try it with oatmeal abread.
