We've been told Irish bread pudding has no historical roots in Ireland. Awwww...
But it's so delicious we don't really care! The recipe below contains lovely Irish flavors. Think of it as an Irish twist on a classic dessert.
As with many authentic Irish meals, it is made of simple ingredients and is simple to make. Breakfast, snack or comfort food, Irish or not, you should really give it a try.
Your taste buds will thank you for it!
The sauce is what gives this delicious dish its Irish character. Two
of our favorites are Irish Cream sauce and Caramel Irish Whiskey sauce.
Irish cream sauce includes:
• 2 cups whipping cream
• 2 teaspoons water
• 6 tablespoons Irish cream liqueur
• 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
• 1/4 cup granulated sugar
• 2 teaspoons of corn starch
Combine and then bring to a boil the whipping cream, Irish cream, vanilla and sugar. Be sure to stir frequently.
In a small bowl, mix the cornstarch and water and then whisk into the cream mixture.
Continue boiling the sauce for 3 minutes or until it thickens. Let cool and then pour over your Irish bread pudding.
Caramel whiskey sauce can be made with:
• 1 1/2 cups granulated sugar
• 1/4 cup butter
• 2/3 cup of water
• 1/4 cup of any brand of Irish whiskey
• 2 ounces cream cheese
• 1/4 cup milk
Boil these ingredients in a saucepan until the mixture becomes golden in color. Do not stir when the sugar dissolves.
Remove the mixture from the heat and add the butter and cream cheese. Stir constantly with a whisk and then cool slightly.
Stir in the milk and whiskey and serve over the bread pudding.
As with any truly Irish food, ingredients can be mixed and mingled to produce your own personal version of Irish bread pudding.
Try it with ice cream (our favorite - yum!) or with homemade fruit preserves.
