Pecan Bread Pudding with Bourbon and Orange
Why This Recipe Works
Toasting cubes of challah was the first step in perfecting our bread pudding recipe. Next, we worked on achieving a silky but not overly eggy custard, using equal parts milk and cream and using just egg yolks, not whites. Finally, topping the pudding with extra challah cubes and sprinkling them with sugar gave our bread pudding recipe a crunchy, buttery, sweet crust that made the perfect partner for the luscious custard below.
