Florida Dessert Recipe

Bread Pudding

1/3 cup honey
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
pinch freshly grated nutmeg
3 medium eggs
1 cup heavy cream
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract (use a high-quality extract, not an imitation)
5 cups cinnamon bread, cut into 1-inch cubes
1/3 cup raisins (optional)
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Grease an 8-inch square baking pan. To make the bread pudding, combine the honey, soda, cinnamon, and nutmeg in a large bowl. Beat in the eggs until smooth, and then work in the heavy cream. Add the vanilla, then the bread cubes. Allow the bread to soak up the custard. Scatter the raisins in the greased pan, and top with the egg mixture, which will prevent the raisins from burning. Bake for approximately 25 to 30 minutes or until the pudding has a golden color, is firm to the touch and a toothpick inserted in the pudding comes out clean. It should be moist, not runny or dry. Let cool to room temperature.
