Irish Car Bomb Bread Pudding

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.
