I just took a bread pudding out of the oven and thought I would share. It takes about 10 minutes of prep time and about 50 minutes in a pre-heated 350 oven. The picture is my first attempt at photographing something I baked.
Here is the recipe:
4 C milk, scalded
4 C dried out bread cubes (It doesn't matter what kinda of bread, tonight's was French but plain ole white bread works well too)
After bringing milk to scald, add the bread and let soak for 5 minutes. While soaking, add together in a bowl:
4 slightly beaten eggs
3/4 C sugar
2 teaspoons vanilla
2 Tablespoons cinnamon (more or less to taste)
After 5 minutes, add the egg mixture to the bread and milk.
1 Tablespoon Butter
1/2 C raisins
Mix well. Pour into greased 2 qt. baking dish and sprinkle top with sugar and cinnamon.
Set dish in a large shallow pan of hot water and bake at 350 oven until firm, about 50 minutes.
After removing from oven and baking dish from pan of hot water (be careful), drizzle top with caramel sauce.
