Recipe: Bourbon Pecan Bread Pudding


Bourbon Pecan Bread Pudding Recipe

Yield: 10-12


  • 4 quarts dense white loaf bread, cubed
  • 2 Cups milk
  • 2 Cups heavy whipping cream
  • 1/2 Cup Bourbon
  • 1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
  • 8 egg yolks
  • 1 Cup sugar
  • 1 Cup cranberries
  • 3/4 Cup pecans, toasted, chopped
    Bourbon Glaze

  • 1 Cup sugar
  • 1/2 Cup (4 oz) butter
  • 1/2 Cup heavy cream
  • 1/4 Cup bourbon


Preheat your Yoder Smokers YS640 Pellet Smoker to 350ºF.

In a sauce pan, combine the milk, cream, bourbon and pumpkin pie spice and bring to a simmer.

Whisk together the yolks and sugar in a bowl. Very slowly pour in a small amount of the milk mixture into the yolk mixture while whisking. As you get more liquid added, you can add it a little faster. Do this until all liquid is incorporated into the yolks.

Fill a 12” Lodge Logic Cast Iron Skillet with the cubed bread. Pour your liquid over the bread. Push the bread around to soak all the cubes. Sprinkle the cranberries and pecans over the bread. Bake at 350ºF for about one hour.

Toward the end of the hour, make the Bourbon Glaze. Combine all ingredients in a sauce pan. Bring to a simmer. Simmer until reduced by half, about 15 minutes. The sauce can then be poured over the finished bread pudding.
