We’ve already had an Irish Car Bomb Ice-cream recipe posted on the site, but I felt like I really needed to share this yummy concoction with you guys.

I love bread pudding, and I felt like the flavors in an Irish car bomb would really lend themselves to an interesting dessert combination.

I began by baking a loaf of Guinness Beer Bread earlier in the week.  I won’t detail the entire process here, since I followed the recipe in the link to the letter. The bread had a lovely crumb, and a wonderful Guinness flavor.  Had I not already planned to use it for this recipe, I would have devoured it warm slathered with butter or made sandwiches with it.  Maybe corned beef sandwiches, even….

Bread Pudding Ingredients:

1 loaf Guinness Beer Bread, cubed.
1 cup Baileys Irish Cream
1 cup cream
1 cup milk
3/4 cup sugar
4 whole eggs
1 cup chocolate chips

Jameson Whiskey Sauce Ingredients
8 oz. evaporated milk
1 egg yolk, beaten
1 cup sugar
1 stick butter, cut into small cubes.
2 jiggers whiskey

In a double boiler or heavy-bottomed saucepan over low heat, combine milk, egg yolk, sugar and butter. Stir constantly until butter has melted and mixture has reached 160F and coats the back of a spoon. Add whiskey and stir to combine. For a kid-friendly version, omit the whiskey and add a teaspoon of vanilla extract instead. The booze in the pudding has been cooked out, so you don’t have to worry about it adversely affecting the kiddos.

    The name of this pudding seems to be in remarkably poor taste! I don’t suppose you would think a 9/11 pudding was in good taste, so why is it OK if it is Irish?

    Karen, It is named after a drink (shot) which has Irish Whiskey, Irish Cream, and Guinness. Hence the Irish part. The ‘car’ comes from it being a ‘side car’ (a shot on the side). It is a ‘bomb’ shot, as in you drop the shot glass into your beer then drink the whole thing. (the quintessential ‘bomb’ shot is the Jager Bomb, but there are other examples:

    I can see where it would be confusing, if you’ve never heard of the drink. And yes, plenty of shots have sexist or not very tasteful names, i think it’s the nature of the beast. In this case, it’s just i would think a clever play on the description of the drink . there are California Car Bombs, Canadian Car Bombs, etc.

    There are lo
