Recipe for Bread Pudding

there has come a request for the recipe of the treat mentioned in a previous post

my Betty Crocker cookbook was a wedding gift and has the picture from 1972 on the cover

use a casserole dish which will fit inside a pan holding water

put the tea kettle water on to heat
pre-heat oven to 350oF
serves 6

Bread Pudding

5 slices bread (I use 3 whole wheat, 2 country white)
2 tablespoons butter or margarine (or more if you like)

1/3 cup packed brown sugar
cinnamon in a shaker

1/3 cup raisins (or more if you like)
3 eggs, slightly beaten
1/3 cup granulated white sugar
dash of salt

2 1/2 cups milk, scalded
(I put in in the microwave for 1 min 20 secs)

***************************************************
toast bread slices lightly
(I put ‘em in the oven a couple minutes while it heats)

Spread slices bread with butter, then sprinkle with brown sugar and cinnamon

cut each slice into 4 pieces

arrange half the bread in a greased 1 1/2 or 2 quart casserole dish
with the butter side UP
sprinkle with some of the raisins
layer rest of bread, butter UP
sprinkle with rest of raisins

MIX Eggs, white sugar, vanilla and salt in a mixing bowl
slowly stir in hot milk

Pour this mixture over the bread in the dish

Place casserole in a pan on oven rack

Pour very hot water into outer pan, at least an inch deep

Bake 65 minutes or until a butter knife inserted halfway between the edge and the center comes out clean
you may need to refill the hot water pan

Remove casserole from hot water

Wait 15 minutes to serve warm
or good anytime
Store leftovers in fridge because of the eggs

my sons and daycare kids loved this when they were little
Husband’s request was the first time I made it in a decade

~~love and Huggs, Diane

    Thanks Diane, I have been working on a recipe that I like for the past year. I have modified several into the recipe I use. It is very similar to yours, however, I will try toasting the bread the next time. I will let you know the results. Thanks again.
