Old-Fashioned Bread Pudding

This is the bread pudding that Mom made when we were kids--the only thing I liked raisins in other than Hot Cross Buns. The best part was the yummy brown sugar sauce in the bottom of the pan. We always just served it straight from the pan. The recipe is from an old newspaper article.

Serves 4.

1 cp dark brown sugar
3 slices bread
1 cp raisins
2 T butter
3 eggs
1/8 tsp salt
1 tsp vanilla

1. Measure into top of a double sauce pan: 1 cp dark brown sugar.

2. Butter: 3 slices bread, using 2 T butter for the 3 slices. Dice the bread and sprinkle over the brown sugar in the sauce pan.

3. Add: 1 cp raisins.

4. Beat: 3 eggs, 2 cps milk, 1/8 tsp salt and 1 tsp vanilla. Pour over bread. Do not stir. Place over simmering water and cook for 1 hour. The brown sugar will form a sauce.

5. Serve warm or cold. Turn out onto serving plate to serve.
