Amazing! I upped the bourbon to 1/2 cup and used Maple Crown Royal (too sweet for drinking, but great for cooking). If you really like the flavor of bourbon I think you could up the amount to 3/4 cup. I substituted dried figs for the golden raisins and the flavors paired really well. I put it under the broiler on low at the end and the butterscotch crystalized perfectly.
Bourbon Bread Pudding with Butterscotch Sauce
For a dessert that's even easier to prepare, top a commercial light pound cake or angel food cake with fat-free butterscotch sundae syrup.
Yield: 9 servings (serving size: 1 piece pudding and 1 tablespoon syrup)
