Bread Pudding














OK, so who doesn't have day old bread, eggs, milk, sugar, cinnamon and vanilla In their kitchen. Bread pudding Is one of my favorites and this recipe Is so simple and really tasty....Enjoy


INGREDIENTS
6 slices day-old bread
2 tablespoons butter, melted
1/2 cup raisins (optional)
4 eggs, beaten
2 cups milk
3/4 cup white sugar
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon vanilla extract


DIRECTIONS
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
Break bread into small pieces into an 8 inch square baking pan. 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 the preheated oven for 45 minutes, or until the top springs back when lightly tapped.

Sauce
1/2 cup powdered sugar
4 TB milk
1/8 Vanilla

I heat the sauce under low heat and 5 minutes before the bread pudding Is to come out of the oven I pour It over the top and return to the oven for remainder of baking time.

Have a super Thursday,
Kathi

Deeelicious!!! It's true -we do have the ingredients for it. I make mine with lightly toasted sliced bread -what kind of bread do you use? I never made a sauce to put on top and I can't wait to try!
