Drunken Raisins Bread Pudding




This bread pudding recipe is the solution to all of your problems. Well, not really, but it will make you feel better after a terrible day! Consuming this dessert is almost like treating yourself to a hot bubble bath. Let us explain - first, you soak the raisins in rum, then you soak the bread in a luxurious milky batter. The process of making this dessert is just as soothing as eating it - its all about relaxing, de-stressing and keeping your mind off of your worries.


We modified Aarti Sequeira's bread pudding recipe by adding the rum-soaked raisins. As she says on her show "Aarti Party" on the Food Network, bread pudding hugs you from the inside out! We think she's right!



Ingredients:

1 French baguette
3 eggs
1 can of coconut milk
3 cups of whole milk
1/2 teaspoon of salt
1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
1/4 teaspoon of Cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon of cardamon
1/4 teaspoon of ground ginger
1 cup of sugar
1/2 cup of raisins
1/2 cup of dark rum
Vanilla ice cream


Kitchen Essentials:
Oven
Knife
Cutting board
Measuring cups and spoons
Baking dish
Small bowl
Large bowl
Whisk

Prep:

Soak the raisins in the rum for an hour or more before preparing this dessert. The longer they soak, the richer the flavor.

When you are ready to begin, preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Cut the baguette into 1-inch cubes, place in a baking dish and toast in the oven for about 10 minutes.

Directions:

In a large bowl, combine the eggs, coconut milk, milk, salt, vanilla extract, cinnamon, ginger, cardamon, sugar and rum-soaked raisins. Carefully whisk, making sure the mixture does not spill out of the bowl. Finally, add the bread cubes and make sure they are all evenly coated. The longer they soak, the better it tastes! When you are ready to bake, place the entire mixture into a baking dish. Pop into the oven and bake for about 35 minutes, until the bread has soaked up all of the liquid. Do yourself a favor and serve your portion with a nice scoop of vanilla ice cream on top. The warm bread pudding with the rich, cold ice cream is edible bliss!
