Bread Pudding for Two with Butter "Rum" Sauce (a recipe)

No matter what the recipe,
any baker can do wonders in the kitchen
with some good ingredients
and an upbeat attitude!
~ Buddy Valastro

Let's make bread pudding for two!

I made mine in Ball jars.

Bread Pudding for Two

Preheat oven to 350º.

Grease the insides of 2 8-ounce ramekins, custard cups or Ball jars.

Cube or tear into pieces 1 dinner roll or 1 slice of bread and drop into the prepared dish or jar. Repeat for second dish or jar.

Scatter over each dish of bread 1 Tablespoonful of raisins or other dried fruit. (I used dried blueberries in mine!)

Next, combine in a measuring glass:
1/2 cup evaporated milk
1 egg
3 Tablespoons water

In a tiny dish, mix together:
2 Tablespoons sugar
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg

Add the sugar-spice mixture to the measuring glass mixture. Note the measurement of the liquid and pour evenly over the bread-filled dishes. Bake uncovered in a preheated 350º oven for 35 to 40 minutes or until a knife inserted near the center comes out clean. Cool 15 minutes.

Meanwhile, prepare Butter "Rum" Sauce for Two.

In a small dish, beat together with a fork and set aside:
1 egg yolk
1 Tablespoon water

In a small saucepan, gently melt:
2 Tablespoons butter

Stir in the egg yolk-water mixture and:
2 Tablespoons sugar

Cook and stir over medium-low heat for 4 minutes or until sugar is dissolved and mixture comes to a boil. Remove from heat and stir in 1 teaspoon rum extract (optional) OR 1 Tablespoon rum or whiskey or bourbon (optional). I poured the sauce over the puddings that had cooled for 15 minutes.
