Ingredients

  • 1 loaf (16 ounces) French bread, cut into 1-inch cubes
  • 1/2 cup raisins
  • 6 eggs
  • 3 cups milk
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1 tablespoon butter, melted

For the Citrus Caramel Sauce

  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 1/4 cup orange juice

Instructions

  • Generously grease bottom and sides of a 9 x 13 baking dish with the melted butter. 
  • In a large bowl, combine bread cubes and raisins. Toss to evenly disperse.
  • In another bowl, whisk eggs until well-blended. Add milk, brown sugar, vanilla, salt, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Stir until blended.
  • Add liquid mixture to bread mixture. Gently stir to fully coat and moisten bread cubes. 
  • Transfer mixture to the prepared baking dish, cover with foil and let stand for about 30 minutes.
  • Bake in a 350 F oven for about 30 minutes or until pudding is mostly set and liquid is absorbed. 
  • Remove foil and continue to bake for another 10 to 15 or until top is golden and a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Remove from oven.
  • In a saucepan over medium heat, melt butter. Add sugar and stir until dissolved. Add heavy cream and orange juice, stirring constantly. Cook for about 2 to 3 minutes or until sauce is slightly thickened but still pourable. The sauce will continue to thicken as it cools. 
  • Drizzle caramel sauce over bread pudding and cut into serving portions. Serve warm.
