Joe's World Famous Bread Pudding
By Joe Evans

Ingredients:

  • 6 cups milk, scalded (Note: 4 cups milk and 2 cup whipping cream or half-and-half may be substituted for extra richness.)

  • 6 large eggs, slightly beaten.

  • 3 (or more) cups dry bread cubes (about 1" size cubes).

  • 1 rounded cup sugar.

  • 2 tablespoons butter.

  • 2-4 teaspoons vanilla, depending on taste (3 is my choice).

  • teaspoons salt.

  • Fresh grated nutmeg to taste (approx. to tsp.)

Directions:

  • Pre-heat oven to 375.

  • Scald milk in saucepan.

  • Turn off heat and add sugar, salt, and butter.

  • Stir until added ingredients are dissolved.

  • Coat deep baking dish with butter and add eggs and grated nutmeg.

  • Temper beaten eggs with small part of hot milk mixture, and then stir in remainder of eggs.

  • Add vanilla and nutmeg, and stir to mix.

  • Add bread cubes, saturating them with the liquid mixture. (Note: add about all the bread cubes the liquid will hold without having them stick too far above the surface of the liquid.)

  • Grate nutmeg on top if desired.

  • Place baking dish in pan filled half-full (about one inch) with water.

  • Bake for one hour or until inserted knife comes out clean.

  • Cool on rack in refrigerator until cold.

  • Serve in bowl with milk or cream.

  • Enjoy! ~ Joe

Publisher's Note: Nothing like gilting the lily - I added a half cup of dried cherries to the scalded milk, golden raisins or chopped dates would also be nice. dlb
