My Bread Pudding

Bread Pudding is one of my husband's favorite desserts - or snack! It's simple to make, and this version has a yummy sauce. Serves 12. Trust me, 12 servings is good because i'm sure people are going to be asking for seconds!

1 loaf of bread, shredded (I used whole wheat)
3 cups milk
4 eggs, beaten
2 cups sugar
2 tsp vanilla extract
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1 tsp nutmeg
1/2 tsp allspice
1/2 cup raisins (more if you wish!)

For the sauce:

1 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup Karo dark syrup
3/4 cup milk
1 tsp vanilla
2 tbsp butter

In a bowl, cover the bread with the milk. Let soak. Add the eggs, sugar, vanilla exteact, cinnamon, nutmeg and allspice. Mix well.

Spray a 9 x 13 baking pan with nonstick spray and pour bread mixture in, making sure to even everything out with a spatula.

Before baking

Bake in a preheated 350 F oven for about a half hour. If you stick a fork in it and it comes out clean, it is done.

While Bread Pudding is baking, prepare the sauce. In a pot on medium-high heat, mix together the brown sugar, milk and Karo syrup till sugar has melted. Add the butter and vanilla extract and simmer for about 5 more minutes. Use a wire whisk to get rid of any lumps. Mix on and off while simmering. Let cool while waiting for bread pudding to get done baking. Pour over bread pudding, like so.

11 points per serving! You really do have to save room for dessert! Enjoy, enjoy and enjoy!
