  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoon (28g) unsalted butter, softened

Preheat oven to 350℉/175℃.

Cut the bread into 1-inch cubes. Pour the milk into a large bowl and add the bread cubes. Use your hands to press all the bread into the milk until all pieces are covered.

  • Add eggs, sugar, vanilla, allspice, cinnamon, and nutmeg to a separate medium bowl. 
  • Beat the egg mixture until thoroughly combined and pour it over the bread mixture. Then add the whiskey-soaked raisins. Stir very gently with a wooden spoon, making sure the bread pieces don’t break apart.
  • Take softened butter using a paper towel or cloth and spread it around a 9×13 pan.
  • making sure to coat the sides and bottom. Alternatively, use a spray.
  • Pour the bread pudding mixture into the pan and bake for 30-40 minutes. When done, the pudding should be slightly brown, and the edges should start to pull away from the sides. Let it cool for 10 minutes before serving
