Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C). Coat a 13x9-inch baking dish with 1/4 cup melted butter.
  2. Pour half and half and milk over bread in a large mixing bowl; let soak for 10 minutes before gently stirring. Stir eggs into the bread mixture until incorporated. Add sugar, vanilla extract, cinnamon, and raisins respectively, stirring each addition into the mixture before adding the next. Spoon bread mixture into prepared baking dish.
  3. Bake in preheated oven until bread mixture is firm and pudding-like, about 50 minutes.
  4. Stir 1/2 pound unsalted butter, heavy cream, and brown sugar together in a heavy saucepan; bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low, stir pecans into the cream mixture, and simmer until the sugar is dissolved and the sauce thickens, about 5 minutes; pour over bread pudding to serve.

OMG! I think I have died and gone to heaven eating this fantastic praline bread pudding! It is awesome! And it tastes great either hot or cold. It was so easy to make. I halved the recipe and otherwise followed the recipe except I used walnuts instead of pecans just because that is what I had on hand. Thank you for sharing your wonderful recipe.

This is VERY sweet -- especially if you're going to add a sweet sauce to top it off. I wish I had followed my instincts and cut the sugar down to 2 cups. I would also mix all the ingredients together before pouring them into the bread -- otherwise you're likely to break down the bread completely .-- so you get mush. I like the crusts also because that helps to keep it from compacting down too much -- just make sure to soak bread long enough to absorb the liquids.

I made this recipe for our Christmas dinner. My family ate every crumb! I am rating this recipe AS WRITTEN. I didn't change a thing. This is my first time trying to make bread pudding and it came out great. Thank you for sharing! I have been told I will be making this at every family gathering from now on :)
