Nonstick cooking spray

1 pound purchased brioche bread

5 cups cold whole milk

2 (4.4 ounce) boxes American custard dessert mix

1/3 cup dark rum

2 egg yolks, beaten

1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg

1/4 cup walnut pieces, lightly toasted

1/4 cup pecan pieces, lightly toasted

1/2 cup golden raisins, optional

Caramel Rum Sauce, recipe follows

Caramel Rum Sauce:

2/3 cup butterscotch caramel sauce

3 tablespoons heavy cream

3 tablespoons dark rum


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Spray a 13 by 9-inch baking dish with nonstick cooking spray. Tear brioche into 1-inch pieces and place in prepared dish. In a large bowl, combine milk, custard dessert mix, rum, eggs, and nutmeg. Whisk until well blended. Stir in nuts and raisins, if using. Pour over brioche; press down lightly on brioche to submerge into custard. Let stand for 10 minutes, or until brioche absorbs custard slightly. Bake for 50 minutes, or until top is golden brown and bread pudding puffs. Serve warm with Caramel Rum Sauce.
