...and my computer is giving me issues and the day is slipping away and it's almost dinner time. The bad news, this will be short. The good news, I managed to get my hands on that bread pudding recipe. And just in time:
Here's the recipe (thanks Stacey!):
1-1/2 loaves white bread at least a day old, cut into 1-inch squares (about 6-7 cups)
1 qt milk (4 cups)
3 eggs, lightly beaten
2 cups sugar
2 Tbsp vanilla
1 cup raisins
1/4 teaspoon allspice
1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
4 Tbsp butter
1 Preheat oven to 350°F.
2 Soak the bread in milk in a large mixing bowl. Press with hands until well mixed and all the milk is absorbed. In a separate bowl, beat eggs, sugar, vanilla, and spices together. Gently stir into the bread mixture. Gently stir the raisins into the mixture.
3 Use a 9x13 inch baking pan. Spray the pan so it won't stick and put pieces of the butter at the bottom of the pan. Pour in the bread mix and bake at 350°F for 35-45 minutes, until set. The pudding is done when the edges start getting a bit brown and pull away from the edge of the pan. Can also make in individual ramekins.
Makes 8-10 servings.
Here's what it looked like BEFORE I polished it off:
