For the Bread Pudding:

  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tbsp. melted butter
  • 2 tbsp. vanilla
  • 2 1/2 c. milk
  • 2 c. sugar
  • 3 1/2 to 5 cups sourdough bread, cut into 1-inch cubes
  • 1/3 c. pecans, finely chopped

For the Cream Sauce:

  • 1/2 c. sugar
  • 1 stick butter
  • 1/2 c. heavy cream


  • Make the bread pudding: Preheat the oven to 325˚. Beat together the eggs, melted butter, vanilla and milk. Add the sugar and mix until dissolved. Arrange the bread cubes tightly in a 9-inch baking dish, keeping the crusts facing up around the edges and scattered within the dish. Pour the liquid over the bread. Sprinkle the pecans all over the top. Bake for 55 to 70 minutes, or until the crust is golden brown all over the top.

  • Make the cream sauce: While the bread pudding is baking, bring the sugar, butter, heavy cream to a low boil in a saucepan over low heat, stirring constantly. Pour a little of the cream sauce over the each serving of bread pudding.
