Raisin Bread Pudding

bread pudding   
 “A unique and easy way to make bread pudding starting with raisin bread.  Thanks to my mother-in-law Ruth, who taught me this and was another dear relative of mine who happily shared her recipes with anyone who asked.  
I have given this recipe away to so many people who have requested it over the years.  
My personal preference is to eat this particular raisin bread pudding cold with nothing else added.   It is so good I don’t want to spoil the taste with whipped cream! But everyone I know has their own way with it, warm, cold, with  or without cream!      Enjoy!”
 Servings: 16


12 slices raisin bread
2 tablespoons butter
6 eggs
5 cups milk
1 cup sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract


  1. Preheat oven to 350°.
2. With a butter knife, lightly spread each slice of bread with one-half teaspoon of butter.
3. Cut the raisin bread slices into quarters.
4. Lay the quartered slices in a 13 x 9×2 – inch pan (or you can use two nine-inch square pans). Lay some slices on top of each other. Set aside.
5. In a large bowl, beat the eggs with a wire whisk, then beat in the milk, sugar, and vanilla extract.
6. Pour this egg mixture over the quartered raisin bread slices. With a spoon push down on the slices so they all get covered with the egg mixture.
7. Place the pan in a water bath. (Put the bread pudding pan into another larger pan that is filled one quarter of the way up with hot water).
8. Bake for 40 minutes.
9. Remove from the oven. It will be a little shaky. That is okay. It firms up as it cools. Remove the bread pudding pan from the water bath and let it cool on a wire rack.
10. Cover and store in the refrigerator.
11. Delicious served either cold  or warm, with or without whipped cream!
