Bread Pudding:

  • 4 cups milk

  • ½ cup butter

  • 1 cup white sugar

  • 4 large eggs, beaten slightly

  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon

  • ¼ teaspoon salt

  • 12 cups dry bread cubes

  • ½ cup raisins

  • ¼ cup finely chopped hazelnuts

Whiskey Sauce:

  • 2 cups packed brown sugar

  • 1 cup butter

  • ½ cup bourbon whiskey


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

  2. Heat milk and 1/2 cup butter in a saucepan over medium heat until butter is completely melted, 3 to 5 minutes.

  3. Mix sugar, eggs, cinnamon, and salt together in a large mixing bowl with a whisk until well blended. Stir in milk mixture. Stir in bread cubes, raisins, and hazelnuts. Let sit for 5 minutes. Pour into an ungreased 9x13-inch baking dish.

  4. Bake, uncovered, until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, 40 to 45 minutes.

  5. While pudding is baking, heat brown sugar, 1 cup butter, and bourbon whiskey in a pot over medium heat, stirring constantly, until boiling and sugar is dissolved, about 5 minutes. Set aside.

  6. Pour sauce over bread pudding when done.
