This recipe comes from my home town of Monroe, Louisiana and has been passed down from many generations and is still a favorite today!  French Bread Pudding with whiskey-soaked raisins and coconut baked in a rich custard drenched  in a Warm Whiskey Sauce. It is sooo delicious that you will want more!
