Basic Bread Pudding

Way back when I was a kid, my mom used to make bread pudding. She also had two different sauces and you never knew which one she felt like making until it was on the table.Sometimes it was a glossy lemon sauce. Sometimes it was whiskey sauce. I've had tons of bread pudding over the years and I keep changing what goes on top.  That depends on what ingredients I've added to the bread pudding itself.  Chocolate chips baked into the bread pudding with Chantilly creme on top is really good. I also happen to love the recipe below with pecan praline sauce on top. This example has a simple homemade vanilla caramel sauce drizzle.  Not to shabby for a weeknight, don't you think? Ingredients 1 small loaf (1lb or so) of cinnamon bread or white bread, cubed, I keep the crust on 6 eggs 3 cups milk, I used whole milk 1 1/2 cups heavy cream 2 teaspooons vanilla extract 1/2 cup white sugar 1/2 cup vanilla sugar dash of salt 3/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon Method 1.
