Whiskey Sauce

Delicious whiskey sauce is a great dessert sauce for a simple pound cake or as here, a perfect accent for this yummy bread pudding.

Whiskey Sauce

This is a simple, egg-less, whiskey sauce that pairs up as nicely with warm bread pudding as it does with pound cake.

  1. Oh my gosh! This was soooo good! I didn't have the fruit cocktail but will try it next time. As for the sauce...I could eat it all by itself! YUM

  2. Oops...that comment was for the bread pudding as well :)

  3. Back in the early 80's I had made bread pudding using stale bread and it was great. Not bragging but, I made one pan with 3 different sections with different fruit.
    As the years past I forgot how to make it. Reading your recipe stirred my apatite again and I can't thank you enough for post this recipe. As I read your recipe it brought back memories and to how I made it years ago. I will make it again.
    Thank you, thank you, thank you.

  4. Thanks so much Frank! Maybe you'll consider sharing your recipe with my readers?! Sounds like it'd be amazing.

    1. Nothing special & it's only a tablespoon so use whatever kind of whiskey or bourbon you usually buy or keep on hand. I have used Jack Daniel's, Maker's Mark works, even Canadian Club - whatever was on hand.
