Recipe By:

Ingredients
  • 1 oz. praline liquor
  • 5 (10”) loaves of French bread
  • 1 qt. milk
  • 6 whole eggs
  • 1 ½ c. sugar
  • ¼ c. vanilla
  • 1 T. cinnamon
  • 1 T. nutmeg
  • 1 T. oil
  • 1 c. chopped pecans
  • 1 c. raisins
  • ½ c. coconut, optional

Instructions
  1. Slice bread into ½” round croutons.
  2. In large bowl, combine milk, eggs and sugar. With wire whisk, blend well.
  3. Add liquor, vanilla, cinnamon and nutmeg. Continue to blend until all are mixed.
  4. Oil 10” cheesecake pan. Press 1 layer of bread into bottom of pan, making sure there are no void spaces.
  5. Sprinkle a small amount of pecans, raisins and coconut over the layer.
  6. Ladle ⅓ of the custard mixture. Carefully press custard into croutons using tips of your fingers. Continue the process until all croutons and custard are used up.

  10. Cook in water bath for 1-1 ½ hours.
