Grand Marnier Bread Pudding with California Golden Raisins

Submitted by: Olivier Dubreuil

A great dessert, but it could become a quick breakfast favorite, too.


  • Serving Size: 1 piece


  • 1 orange
  • 3/4 cup sugar, divided
  • 3/4 cup California golden raisins
  • 6 tablespoons Grand Marnier
  • 6 eggs
  • 3 cups milk
  • 2 French baguettes
  • 1 cup apricot coulis


Grate orange peel and squeeze juice from the orange; mix together with 1/4 cup sugar. Let stand for 1 hour. Soak raisins in Grand Marnier and warm water. In a separate bowl, mix eggs with milk; add orange juice mixture and raisins. Cube bread in pieces 1-inch thick. Soak cubes in egg mixture and let sit for 10 minutes.

Preheat oven to 350°F.

In a sautépan, caramelize the remaining 1/2 cup of sugar and a few drops of water. Pour caramelized sugar into bottom of a glass or non-reactive loaf pan. Pour bread mixture into pan and bake at 350°F in a water bath for 1 hour, or until sharp knife inserted in center comes out clean. Remove from oven and let cool for 3 hours.

To serve, remove from pan and slice. Arrange on individual plates; top with apricot coulis.
