Bread Pudding Recipe

Warm, and tender this creamy bread pudding recipe can soothe the soul!...

Ingredients:

12 to 16 ounces white bread, stale but not hard
3/4 cup raisins
4 large eggs
3/4 cup sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/2 teaspoon salt
3 cups whole milk
Whipped cream


Directions - Bread Pudding Recipe:

Grease a 2-quart baking dish.

Trim the crust from the bread, and cut into 1/2-inch cubes. You should end up with 4 to 5 lightly packed cups of bread cubes. Spread the bread evenly in the prepared baking dish. Sprinkle the raisins over the top.

In a medium bowl, whisk together eggs, sugar, vanilla, cinnamon, nutmeg, and salt. Next, whisk in whole milk. Pour the egg-milk mixture over the bread and let stand for 30 minutes. Periodically press down the bread to help it absorb the liquid.

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Bake the pudding in a water bath until puffed and firm in the center, about 75 minutes. Serve warm with whipped cream.

Recipe yields 6 - 8 servings.
