    Is your recipe anything like the pie Pappadeux's sells (or used to)? One of the best desserts ever.

    Bread pudding:
    2 eggs
    2 tbs melted butter
    2 tbs Mexican vanilla
    2 1/2 c milk
    2 c sugar
    2 c sourdough bread (or adjust), cut into 1 inch cubes
    1/3 c pecans
    1/2 c raisins (if you want)

    Preheat oven to 325. Beat eggs, add butter, vanilla, and milk, then slowly mix in sugar until its dissolved. Place bread cubes into baking dish (I use enough that it fills up the dish and adjust the other amounts as needed), then pour the liquid over the bread until saturated. The less liquid, the more cake-y it is, but you have to at least saturate the bread. Sprinkle pecans and raisins over the mixture and push them down into the bread. Bake for 50-60 min.

    *you can add a 1/4 c Jack Daniels to the liquid for the bread if you increase the bread a little bit

    Whiskey sauce:
    1/2 c sugar
    1 stick butter
    1/2 c heavy cream
    1/3 c Jack Daniels

    Combine in medium sauce pan, stir constantly over low eat until mixture reaches a low rolling boil. Pour over the individual servings of bread pudding.

    Today's batch. Holy yum.

    Bump bc I couldn’t find this recipe ANYWHERE and finally remembered I had posted it here. I’ve never said this before but thank God for Landthieves.

If you do the actually amounts, it's very wet like a typical bread pudding, of which I'm not a fan. If you add more bread as only increase the liquid slightly or not at all, it's more like a cake texture - moist but not pudding-y.
    But, err, umm, isn’t it called bread PUDDING??
    Where do you purchase Mexican vanilla?
