Dark rum and dried fruit add a rich, caramel-like sweetness to this hearty, comfort-food dessert. To make ahead, prep the dish until just before baking, tightly cover in plastic wrap and leave up to overnight.
1/2 cup golden raisins
1/2 cup dried currants
1/3 cup dark rum
8 tablespoons unsalted butter, softened
15 slices white bread or brioche loaf
5 eggs
1/4 cup sugar
3 1/2 cups milk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Cream or Ice cream, for serving
Bread & Butter Pudding Recipe at
Soak the raisins and currants in the rum for at least 1 hour. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.

Fill a roasting pan with enough hot water to come halfway up the side of the 1-quart baking dish you plan to use for the pudding. Place it in the oven. Butter the baking dish. Butter the bread or brioche slices. Cut into triangles and arrange in the dish, alternately with the raisins and currants, until all are used.

In a bowl, whisk together the eggs and sugar until pale. Heat the milk to boiling point and whisk into the egg mixture. Add any remaining rum and the vanilla. Pour over the bread and let stand for 10 minutes to allow it to soak up the egg custard. Place the dish in the roasting pan in the oven and cook for 40-45 minutes, or until the custard is just set. If the top browns too quickly, place aluminum foil over the top to prevent burning.

Serve warm with cream or ice cream.

Great breakfast, brunch or anytime desert!
I made this and it was superb! The minor tweaking I did was to double up on the golden raisins since I couldn't find currants at my local market. I also added a little more sugar to please my sweet tooth. It came out perfect! I recomend this for a quick fix for those sweet cravings.
