A traditional bread butter pudding that is easy and is recommended for tea and desert.
6 slices of one day old bread
2 tablespoons of butter, melted
half cup of raisins (optional)
4 eggs, beaten
2 cups of milk
3/4 cup of white sugar
1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
1 teaspoon of ground cinamon
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F
Break bread into small pieces. The crusts could be sprinkled on top of the bread. Drizzle melted butter or margarine over bread. If desired, sprinkle with raisins.
In a medium mixing bowl, combine eggs, milk, sugar, cinnamon and vanilla. Beat until well mixed. Pour over bread, and lightly push down with a fork until bread is covered and soaking up the egg mixture.
Bake in preheated oven for 45 minutes, or until the top springs back when lightly tapped.
