Bread Pudding

Bread Pudding (Gramma’s recipe)

1 ¼ cups stale (not dry) cubes
2 cups scalded milk
2 tbsp. butter
Few grains salt
3-5 tsps. Sugar
½ tsp vanilla

Mix together bread, sugar, salt & butter. Pour the hot milk over, cover & set aside to cool to loke warm. Add the slightly beaten eggs & vanilla. Turn into buttererd baking dish & bake in a moderately slow oven(325◦F) for 1 hour or until pudding is fairly firm in centre. Serve hot or cold. Can be sprinkled with cinnamon

Old Fashioned Bread Pudding

3 cups bread crumbs ( as above)
2 cups milk
¼ cup butter
½ cup sugar
¼ tsp salt
1 tsp. cinnamon or nutmeg( I prefer cinnamon)
2 eggs, slightly beaten
½ cup raisins

Place bread crumbs in 1 ½ qt. greased baking dish. For firmer pudding use an extra cup of bread crumbs.

Scald milk with butter; add sugar, salt and spices and mix well. Pour over bread mixture. Sprinkle with raisins. (n I think I mix them in a bit)

Place baking dish ina pan of hot water 1” deep. Bake 40- 45 min. at 350◦F oven. When it’s done a knife inserted in centre will come out clean.. usually takes longer..
Serve warm with ice cream…
