Ingredients:  
1 teaspoon butter
4 eggs
1 cup firmly packed light brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/8 teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1/4 cup good quality bourbon
2 cups half-and-half

Directions:
Directions:
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Grease 8 x 8 pan with butter. Whisk the eggs, sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, vanilla and bourbon together in a large mixing bowl until very smooth. Add half-and-half and mix well. Set aside about 1/4 cup of the mixture for bourbon sauce to top the bread pudding.

To the cubed bread you can add chopped apples, raisins or craisins. Let the mixture sit for 2 hours, stirring occasionally. Pour mixture into the prepared pan. Bake until the pudding is set in the center, about 55 minutes. Let cool for 5 minutes. To serve, cut the pudding into square slices. Lay each slice in the center of each serving plate while still warm. Sprinkle with pudding with confectionersí sugar or you can add a couple tablespoons to the cream mixture you set aside. Warm bourbon sauce in micro or on stove top stirring constantly and then spoon some of the bourbon sauce over the pudding.

Personal Notes:
A friend of mine, Dan, owns Austin's Smokin Steakhouse. He adapted this from an Emeril recipe. I further adapt by adding sour apples and craisins instead of raisins. While I was doing my studies and John Carroll and preparing for SPHR, I would stop at night for a coffee, Frangelico, bread pudding and good conversation! This is great in the winter. It's warm, rich and worth sharing. Serves 10
