Best Bread Pudding with Vanilla Sauce

I've found the ultimate bread pudding recipe! I will make this one over and over for sure. 
Last Sunday night, for Billie's first night back to life group, the group asked to make his favorite foods. I recommended Italian. I made the bread pudding, which is one of Billie's favorite desserts. The last time I made bread pudding, there was an egg-y taste to it that I did not like. So I tried a new recipe this time. MAJOR success! 

(Adapted from this recipe)

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Grease a 2-quart baking dish.
  2. In a mixing bowl, whisk 3 eggs, white sugar, 2 tablespoons of light brown sugar, 1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon, 1/4 cup of butter, and 3 cups of whole milk together, and gently stir in the bread cubes and raisins. Lightly spoon the mixture into the prepared baking dish.
  3. Bake in the preheated oven until browned and set in the middle, 50-60 minutes; cover the dish with foil after 30 minutes to prevent excessive browning. Let the pudding stand for 10 minutes before serving.
  4. For vanilla sauce, whisk 1/2 cup of light brown sugar, the flour, a pinch of cinnamon, 1 egg, 2 tablespoons of melted butter, 1 1/4 cups of whole milk,and salt together in a heavy saucepan until smooth. Heat over medium heat, whisking constantly, until thickened and the sauce coats the back of a spoon, 10 to 12 minutes. Stir in the vanilla extract. Pour sauce over warm bread pudding, or serve on the side in a bowl.
