Bread Pudding

I'm not sure if there is any luck involved in this recipe, but we have made Bread Pudding New years Day for as long as I can remember. (It is way better than black eyed peas!) It is a great way to kick off the New Year and start your diet the day after.
It is rich and decedent and a perfect start to new beginnings!


1 loaf stale french bread cut into 1 inch cubes
2 cups heavy cream
2 cups milk
1 cup white sugar
1 cup light brown sugar
4 Tablespoons melted unsalted butter
3 eggs slightly beaten
2 Tablespoons vanilla
1 cup raisins
1 cup shredded sweetened coconut
1 cup chopped pecans
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon nutmeg

Combine all ingredients in a large mixing bowl. Pour into buttered 9X9 baking dish. Place on middle rack of non-preheated oven. Bake at 350° F for approximately 1 hour and 15 minutes until top is golden brown. Serve warm with Whiskey Sauce.

Ingredients for Whiskey Sauce

1/2 cup butter
1 1/2 cups powdered sugar
1 egg yolk
1/4-1/2 cup bourbon to taste

Cream butter and sugar over medium heat until all the butter is absorbed. Remove from heat and blend in egg yolk. Pour in bourbon gradually to your own taste, stirring constantly. Sauce will thicken as it cools. Serve warm over bread pudding.
