Custardy Bread Pudding



2 cups bread, cut into cubes
2 cups milk
3 eggs
1/2 cup sugar
raisins if desired
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
pinch of salt


Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

Place bread cubes in a 1 ½-quart buttered baking dish. In a saucepan, scald milk; let cool. In a bowl, beat eggs well; add scalded milk, sugar, salt, raisins (if desired), and vanilla.

Pour mixture onto bread cubes and combine lightly. Fill a second, larger baking dish with an inch or two of water, and place bread mixture dish inside.

Bake for 50 to 60 minutes, or until a knife inserted into the center comes out nearly clean. Serve warm.
