Easy Bread Pudding
6 slices of day-old bread (I used half a loaf of my Honey Wheat Bread)
2 Tbs butter, melted
1/2 cup of raisins (optional)
2 cups milk
3/4 cup white sugar
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1 tsp vanilla extract
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Tear up the bread into 1 inch chunks and place in an 8X8 baking dish.
Sprinkle with raisins and pour the melted butter over the top.
In a separate bowl, beat together the eggs, milk, sugar, and vanilla extract (I used my stand-mixer).
Pour the egg mixture over the top of the bread. Use a fork and push the bread down into the liquid.
Bake in the 350 degree oven for 45 minutes until it's puffed up and golden brown and center springs back when pushed.
