Jamaican Bread Pudding with Rum Glaze

By Edited Nov 13, 2013 5 9

A delicious Caribbean dessert full of rum soaked dried fruit and sourdough bread. Lots of fun making this and such an enjoyable taste treat. A double sauce is drizzled on; the last is an explosion of the full body dark rum flavor in a thin syrup with a hint of maple syrup. Use your favorite bread and dried fruits, soaked in rum. Enjoy!

Things You Will Need:

  • Stale sourdough baguette, 1 12" loaf
  • 1 c. rum-soaked dried dates
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 c. milk
  • 3 Tbsp. Greek yogurt
  • 1 tsp. baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 2 Tbsp. Splenda or sugar
  • 1/2 tsp. cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp. nutmeg
  • 2 tsp. vanilla extract
  • Glaze:
  • 1/2 c. powdered sugar
  • 2 Tbsp. heavy cream or milk
  • 2 Tbsp, dark rum
  • 3 tsp. maple syrup
  • Syrup Topper:
  • 5 Tbsp. of dark rum
  • 2 Tbsp. maple syrup

Step 1

Mix together the milk, yogurt, eggs, sugar, vanilla extract.

Step 2

Rehydrate several day old bread. Add stale bread and soak for 2-4 hours; so bread can fully absorb the flavors.

Step 3

Soak dates in dark rum for 2-12 hours. There are several brands and types of rum that can be used. I have found dark rums to be the best for this dish.

Step 4

Golden baked bread pudding. Add dates and the remaining ingredients and all favorite condiments. Bake at 350 degrees for 35 minutes or until golden.

Step 5

Allow glaze to permeate the inner bread pudding. Poke holes with a fork just below the middle of pudding to allow glaze to seep in.

Step 6

First rum glaze. Glaze ingredients should be blended and cooked on medium-low for 5 minutes. Pour glaze evenly over top of semi-cooled bread pudding.

Step 7

Second rum sauce topping. Blend maple syrup and dark rum, warm for 1-2 minutes and pour over cut bread pudding, or serve as a side sauce.

 Tips & Warnings

  • Rum soak cherries, figs or any other favorite dried fruit for this recipe.
  • Replace rum with rum flavoring.
  • Use 3 cups of favorite stale bread.
  • Use Splenda in place of regular or powdered sugar.
  • Cook syrup longer, if alcohol is not desired in this dish.
  • Add butter to rum syrup for richness.

This sounds like something to have on a cold night. Although too many ingredients for me now that traveling in a caravan and often cooking in camp oven. Will have to wait till back home again.
