“POSH” Bread Pudding with a Warm Whiskey Sauce

It may be a family favourite and “stodgy” sounding but this really is a treat.

POSH because it uses some really fabulous bread and the whiskey sauce adds a warming touch to make this a really special dessert.

Great for the family get-together during those cold winter months.

Watch the video as it teaches you step-by-step how to make your bread pudding and the whiskey sauce.

Bread pudding can be made with basic bread that has gone a little too stale, but I love this version with my homemade brioche bread rolls.

The rolls were made a few days earlier and were just about to turn too hard to taste good!

Mind you, I did make a little mistake with the portions and consequently the bread rolls turned out rather too large. Tasty, but too large.

Anyhow, it gave me the chance to try this classic dessert recipe.

Another great bread to use is a stale crusty loaf. Make sure when ripping into pieces that you use mostly parts of the bread that have the crust attached as this makes your bread pudding even crunchier and far more tastier.

The crunch really does add to the magic of this pudding.

To Make The Whiskey Sauce

  3. Pour in the whiskey and whisk again.
Recipe Notes

Preheat the oven to 180 degrees centigrade/350 degrees Fahrenheit/Gas mark 4.

Grease, with soft butter, a 8 inch baking dish.

To check if the pudding is baked enough, slide a knife into the centre as you do with most cakes and if the blade comes out clean, the dessert is ready.

I like to have a great crunch on top so leave the baking a little longer.

Serve warm with the warm whiskey sauce and you have a sure fire winner.
