Bread Pudding

10 slices stale bread, cut into cubes
1/4 cup butter, melted
1/2 cup raisins
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
6 eggs
3/4 cup white sugar
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon salt
3 cups hot milk
pinch ground nutmeg

Heat oven to 375 F. In a large bowl, combine bread cubes, melted butter, raisins and cinnamon. Mix well, and transfer to a 2-quart baking dish. In the same bowl, beat the eggs. Stir in sugar, vanilla and salt until sugar is dissolved. Slowly whisk in the hot milk. Pour egg mixture over bread cubes, sprinkle with nutmeg and set aside to soak for five minutes. Bake for 25 to 30 minutes, or until a knife inserted into the center comes out clean.

Remember the smell of bread pudding baking? Can you taste this special treat from your childhood!?! I can't wait to try it again! I know it has lots of eggs, I plan to cut one out and use low fat milk, that should help!! :) ENJOY!
