Default Elegant Bread Pudding

Elegant Bread Pudding



10 cups cubed croissants or French bread
1/2 cup raisins
8 eggs
2 cups half-and-half cream
1 cup packed brown sugar
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1 teaspoon grated orange peel
Caramel Sauce:
1 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 cup butter
1/2 cup heavy whipping cream
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Whipped cream, optional
Arrange bread cubes evenly in a greased 13 by 9-inch baking dish; sprinkle with raisins. In a large bowl, beat the eggs, half-and-half cream, sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg and orange peel; pour over bread.
Bake, uncovered, at 350 for 30 minutes. Cover with foil and bake 15 minutes longer or until a knife inserted near the center comes out clean.
For sauce, in a saucepan, combine the brown sugar, butter and whipping cream; cook and stir over low heat until smooth. Remove from the heat; stir in vanilla.
Serve bread pudding in bowls with caramel sauce and whipped cream if desired. Yield: 14 servings.
