Wanda Rouzan’s Condensed Milk Bread Pudding
Recipe posted by WGNO, July 2013.

4 eggs
1 12-oz. can evaporated milk
1 cup milk
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon nutmeg
1/2 teaspoon allspice
2 cups light brown sugar
1 loaf stale French bread, thickly sliced, ends included
1 stick butter
1 can sweetened condensed milk
1 box raisins (~ 1/3 to 1/4 cup)

1. Preheat oven to 350⁰F. Mix eggs, evaporated milk, milk, vanilla, spices and sugar in bowl.
2. Layer bread in a buttered 9×13-inch pan. Melt 6 Tablespoons of butter and pour over bread along with 3/4 of the sweetened condensed milk. Sprinkle the raisins over the bread. Pour the egg mixture over bread, refrigerate for one hour.
3. Dot with remaining butter. Drizzle with remaining condensed milk. Bake for 45 minutes.  Allow to cool but best served warm.

Whiskey Sauce (from another recipe):

2 teaspoons cornstarch
2 Tablespoons water
1-1/2 cups heavy cream
Few drops of vanilla extract
1/3 cup Bourbon
1/3 cup sugar

1. Mix together the water and cornstarch. Bring the cream to a boil in a small saucepan.
2. While boiling slowly whisk in the cornstarch slurry; when the sauce is thickened, remove from the heat and add the vanilla, bourbon and sugar. Set aside to cool to room temperature.

Comments: The only change I made was due to my only having dark brown sugar on hand; I used half dark brown and half white sugar, just so the custard wouldn't be a muddy color. The raisins I had were the small boxes usually used in kids' lunch boxes so I used two boxes. The pudding was gorgeous, with the rounded end pieces and larger pieces sticking up in the baking dish turning a nice dark brown over a golden brown base. And it was absolutely delicious!

In case you're curious, Wanda Rouzan is one of New Orleans's premier musical ambassadors, leads her own band, “A Taste of New Orleans” which performs all over the world.  She's a singer, actress, choreographer, grand marshal and educator; she has a Master's degree, teaches Theatre Arts and had a recurring role in HBO'S "Treme." A remark about her music said it fused Blues and Jazz, Gospel and Soul into a ‘Jump on your feet and sing along’ music revival, with her performances filling your heart and spirit.  She is also one of the few females to carry on the New Orleans tradition of leading jazz funerals and parades.  One more thing: Her bread pudding is divine.
