1/2 cup butter
1 cup sugar
1 egg, beaten well

Heat the milk in a large heavy bottom pan until just before boiling. Remove the pan from heat, add the bread, and soak until soft, but not mushy.

In a large bowl, beat together the butter and sugar until creamy. Add the eggs, salt, vanilla, cinnamon, and nutmeg and mix well. Add the bread mixture, raisins, and apples and mix well.

Pour into a buttered casserole dish. Place the casserole dish into a shallow pan along with an inch or so of boiling water. Bake 40 minutes at 350 degrees. Serve with the Whiskey Sauce.


In a saucepan, melt the butter. Add the sugar and stir until all the sugar is dissolved. Add the egg and stir. Remove from heat and cool.

When cooled, add the whiskey and cream. Blend until light and fluffy. Cool in the refrigerator for at least an hour before serving.
