Apple Bread Pudding with Bourbon Sauce

Serves: 8
Total Calories: 377


8 cups sourdough or French bread (day old is best)
4 tablespoons butter
3 cups low-fat milk, scalded
1 cup brown sugar
1 cup apple pie filling
3 eggs, beaten
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
1/2 cup raisins
Bourbon Sauce:
6 tablespoons butter
1 large egg
3/4 cup powdered sugar
3 tablespoons bourbon whiskey


Butter bread and tear into small pieces. Place in a large bowl. Scald milk and then pour over bread to cover. Let soak for 30 minutes.

Once bread has been soaking for about 15 minutes, preheat oven to 350°. Toss the brown sugar and apple pie filling. Add beaten eggs and vanilla and whisk together. Pour over bread mixture. Sprinkle raisins over top and lightly stir to blend. Scrape the mixture into a lightly oiled 2-quart baking dish. Place the baking dish in a larger pan filled with hot water. Place the entire contents into oven. Bake for 60–70 minutes. You may want to loosely cover pudding with foil after 30 minutes of baking to prevent the top from burning. While Bread Pudding is baking, prepare the Bourbon Sauce.

Bourbon Sauce:
Melt butter in a small saucepan. In a small bowl, beat egg, then beat in powdered sugar. Stir into melted butter and whisk mixture until it becomes hot. Do not boil. Remove from heat and let cool to room temperature, stirring occasionally. The sauce will thicken as it cools. Stir in the bourbon. Serve pudding hot or warm, spooning the sauce over each serving.
