- 1 loaf French Bread
- 3 eggs
- 1 1/2 cup Raisins
- 2 Cups Maple Syrup
- 2 Cups Milk (or cream)
- 1 Tsp. Orange extract
- 3 Tbs. Butter
- 2 Tbs. Honey
Preheat oven to 350 F. In a saucepan, add syrup, honey, milk, nutmeg, cinnamon and orange extract. Whisk. Bring to a simmer over medium-low heat. While doing that, prepare your bread by cubing it. Also, melt butter in a small pot on low heat.
Simmer the syrup for 5 minutes, whisking occasionally. Move to a pan to allow to cool. Transfer bread and raisins into a large bowl.
Beat three eggs. Add melted butter to bread and raisins followed by the eggs. Mix throughly. Move to a oven safe pan (preferably and cast-iron skillet).
Hopefully your syrup is cooled. If it has, pour it all over the bread. Arrange the bread to get maximum absorption.
Place in the oven and bake for roughly 40 minutes. Place a pan under the bread pudding to catch any spillage. The syrup will bubble while baking and should produce a seductive dessert. Garnish with mint. Enjoy.
