Bread Pudding

Bread Pudding Recipe

4 slices day old bread or enough to fill the pan you are using, cubed or torn
apple pie spices
1 1/2 cups of milk
1/2 cup of raisins or dates
1 egg
3/4 cup of brown sugar (this is a lot of sugar, you can reduce this amount)
1 tsp. vanilla
pecans, maple syrup and brown sugar (optional)

Place bread in a buttered pan and sprinkle generously with apple pie spices. Add the raisins or dates on top. Mix together the milk, egg, brown sugar, vanilla and salt and pour over the bread. Bake in an oven at 350 for 30 minutes or until done. You can double the recipe but I wouldn't double the sugar. If you want to add a topping for a bit more interest and yumminesss, you can mix together some pecans, maple syrup and brown sugar and put it on top of the pudding prior to baking. It tastes wonderful served with caramel sauce and topped with whipped cream.
