Don't be fresh

Fresh bread just doesn't soak up the pudding mixture the way sponge-like, day-old bread does.

White out

If you don't have white bread, other types will work just fine. Try to use "eggy" breads like brioche or challah.

Tips, tools & techniques

One key to great home cooking is having a few of those "clear out the larder" recipes in your arsenal. These are those soups, casseroles and desserts that tend to use perishable ingredients that need to be consumed sooner rather than later and staples usually already on hand. Bread pudding is a timeless example of these better-than-the-sum-of-its-parts recipes, versions of which exist all over the world. Bread pudding is adaptable and can be made with a variety of spices and toppings, so try experimenting once you have this one down. If you enjoy the bourbon caramel sauce, try it again with other desserts.
