♥Grandma's Creamy Bread Pudding ♥

Getting a little cool outside? Are you feeling like you need a little comfort food? I've got just the medicine you have been looking for. This bread pudding recipe is the best I have ever eaten - and I mean EVER! Easy to prepare and heavenly when it hits your taste buds, this recipe will become one of those favorites you grab to make when the wind is whipping around the snow, there is a log crackling in the fireplace and the cat wants to curl up in your lap.

6 eggs
2 cups half-and-half
5 cups milk
1 cup sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 pound loaf of raisin bread with cinnamon. Pull apart slices into about 1.5" cubes. You can also cut with a knife but if the little ones want to help this is a great job for small hands. Place bread in large mixing bowl.
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Beat the eggs well. Add milk, half-and-half, sugar, vanilla, and mix well. Pour this mixture over the bread cubes and lightly mix.
Pour the bread mixture into a greased 9x13-inch glass baking pan and place inside large roasting pan. I use one of those large, disposal (I keep it for this purpose alone and it has lasted for years) aluminum turkey size roasters you can get at Walmart. Fill aluminum baking pan with warm water until it is about half way up the sides of the glass pan. Bake about one hour or until the top is lightly browned and a knife inserted in the center comes out clean.  Remove from oven and serve warm, topped with vanilla ice cream or swimming in half and half.
This will make you swoon!

I've been looking for a terrific bread pudding recipe! Jim and I love it, and it was always a hit at his family's restaurants. The recipe got lost when they all closed in the 80's. Now...we'll have one to call our own. Thanks to you and your dear Mom!
