Cooking Light JANUARY 1996

  • Yield: 9 servings (serving size: 1 piece pudding and 1 tablespoon syrup)


  • 1 (16-ounce) loaf unsliced French bread
  • 2 cups skim milk
  • 1/2 cup firmly packed brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup bourbon
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 2 eggs
  • 2/3 cup golden raisins
  • Vegetable cooking spray
  • 1/2 cup fat-free butterscotch-flavored sundae syrup


Trim crust from bread using a serrated knife, and discard crust. Cut bread into 1-inch cubes. Arrange bread cubes in a single layer on a baking sheet. Bake at 350° for 18 minutes or until toasted.

Combine skim milk, brown sugar, bourbon, vanilla extract, and eggs in a large bowl; stir well. Add bread cubes and raisins; toss gently. Cover and chill 45 minutes.

Spoon mixture into a 9-inch square baking dish coated with cooking spray. Cover and bake at 350° for 30 minutes. Uncover and bake an additional 25 minutes or until pudding is set.

Pour syrup into a small microwave-safe bowl. Microwave at HIGH 30 seconds or until warm. Serve syrup with bread pudding.
