Rum-Raisin Bread Pudding


Bread pudding is the king of comfort desserts, and this version, inspired by rum-raisin ice cream, includes whole-wheat bread for added goodness. Nonfat evaporated milk subs for full-fat dairy and we use fewer eggs, all of which helps to lighten this warm dessert: it has only a tiny fraction of the fat and half the calories of a typical bread pudding. Enjoy it with a scoop of low-fat vanilla ice cream or frozen yogurt.

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Coat an 8-inch-square baking pan with cooking spray.
  2. Put raisins in a small bowl, sprinkle with rum (or brandy) and set aside to soak for 10 minutes. Spread bread in an even layer in the prepared pan.
  3. Whisk eggs in a medium bowl. Add evaporated milk, brown sugar, vanilla and nutmeg; whisk until the sugar dissolves. Stir in the rum-soaked raisins. Pour the mixture over the bread. Mix in any unsoaked bread pieces with a fork. Let stand for 10 minutes.
  4. Bake the pudding until puffed and set in the center, 35 to 40 minutes. Serve warm.
