DIRECTIONS

  • Butter the inside of a 1 1/2 quart baking dish. (I use an 8" square pan.).
  • In the baking dish, place bread and raisins.
  • In a small bowl, whisk together sugar, salt and spices.
  • In a small saucepan, heat milk and butter until butter is melted. Remove from heat.
  • Add sugar mixture and stir to dissolve. Allow to cool slightly and add eggs, whisking to combine.
  • Add egg mixture to bread, letting it soak in while you preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
  • Bake for 40-45 minutes, until a knife, inserted in the center, comes out clean.
  • Serve warm, with or without cream.
