FavoriteLoadingAdd This Recipe to Your Favorites


  • 1 (20 ounce) can crushed pineapple
  • 8 ounces raisins
  • 1 cup dark rum
  • 30 ounces stale French bread
  • 1 quart milk
  • 6 ounces melted butter
  • 3 large eggs
  • 6 ounces evaporated milk
  • 3 tablespoons vanilla extract
  • 1 1/2 cups granulated sugar
  • 1/4 cup dark brown sugar
  • Hot Rum Sauce:
  • 2 cups granulated sugar
  • 8 ounces butter
  • 2 large eggs
  • 4 ounces dark rum
  • Reserved marinade


Step 1

Place pineapple and raisins in a bowl. Add rum and set aside to marinate for 48 hours. Break up the bread and soak in the milk, then strain out excess liquid in a sieve and place the mushy bread in a mixing bowl. Drain the rum from the fruit and reserve liquid for making sauce. Add the fruit to the bread, together with melted butter.

Step 2

In a separate bowl beat the eggs with the evaporated milk, vanilla and both sugars and add to the bread and fruit. Mix with a spoon until thoroughly blended. To cook: transfer the mixture to a well-greased 12 x 9-inch baking pan and bake in a preheated 350 degree F oven for 30 minutes, then remove pan and stir well. Spread the pudding evenly and replace in the oven to bake for a further 40 to 45 minutes. Serve immediately with Hot Rum Sauce.

Step 3

Combine sugar and butter in a double boiler. Beat eggs, add to the pan and whisk rapidly to produce a thick consistency. Remove pan from heat and allow to cool, then stir in rum and reserved marinade. Reheat before pouring over the pudding prior to serving.
