How To Make Bread and Butter Pudding with Whiskey Crème Anglaise

Indulge yourself in this elegant bread and butter pudding that’s made with eggs-and-milk-soaked brioche, and served with a spiked creme Anglaise.

Preparation: 10 minutes
Cooking: 35 minutes
Total: 45 minutes



  • 5slicesbrioche,crust on
  • 4tbspunsalted butter
  • ½cupgolden raisins
  • ¼cupsugar,plus ⅓ cup more
  • 2cupsmilk
  • 2large eggs
  • 5large egg yolks
  • 2cupsheavy cream
  • 1vanilla bean
  • 2tbspIrish whiskey


  1. Spread 1 side of each brioche slice with butter, then cut in half diagonally.

  2. Using a 10-inch ovenproof skillet, arrange triangles, slightly overlapping, with butter side up and cut edges facing in the same direction to make a spiral. Sprinkle layers with raisins and ¼ cup of sugar.

  3. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

  4. Whisk milk and eggs in a small bowl. Pour mixture over bread, and set dish aside for 15 minutes for bread to absorb liquid.

  5. Bake for 30 to 35 minutes, until the top is golden brown.

  6. Meanwhile, set aside a fine strainer, and place a large bowl in an ice bath.

  7. In a heatproof bowl, whisk the remaining sugar and yolks until well blended. Add heavy cream and vanilla bean to a medium, heavy-bottom saucepan; cook over medium heat, watching carefully, until just boiling.

  8. Remove from heat, and whisk a few tablespoons of cream into the sugar-yolk mixture. Gradually add remaining cream and bean, whisking constantly.

  9. Rinse the saucepan, then pour in the custard. Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly until just thickened. Do not boil. Check the consistency by dipping a wooden spoon in, then running a finger along the back; the streak should stay intact.

  10. Immediately remove from heat and pour through a strainer into the bowl in an ice bath, scraping cream from pan bottom. Scrape out vanilla bean, and stir seeds into sauce; discard pod. Mix in whiskey.

  11. Serve pudding family-style with crème anglaise in a sauceboat on the side. Enjoy!
