'Dead in the Family' Sookie Book #10 Recipes: Crawdad's Bread Pudding

It's time to look at the new recipes from the new book!
What a great story behind this recipes of the original Crawdad Diner owners, Perdita and Crawdad Jones being handed down to Ralph Tooten when he bought the restaurant and then again when he sold it to Pinkie Arnett.

Crawdad's Bread Pudding


  • 3 large eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1 1/2 cups sugar
  • 2 tablespoons light brown sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/4 cup butter, melted
  • 2 3/4 cups whipping cream
  • 4 cups cubed French bread
  • 3/4 cup raisins


Combine first 4 ingredients; stir in butter and whipping cream. Gently stir in bread and raisins. Pour into a lightly greased 2-quart soufflé or deep baking dish.

Bake at 375° for 50 to 55 minutes, shielding with aluminum foil after 30 minutes to prevent excessive browning. Let pudding stand 10 minutes before serving warm .

** the secret is in the French bread and the homemade whipped cream..yummyyyyy!!!
