“A rich, delicious, custard-y bread pudding. Not overly sweet, just yummy. From the April, 1944 issue of Woman's Day, in an article called "Wartime Cooking: Good Desserts," which consisted entirely of recipes for using up "odds and ends of bread and sliced bread that might otherwise go to waste." Thought it was a good recipe for these penny-pinching days, too.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Combine slightly beaten eggs, milk, sugar, salt, vanilla and raisins.
  2. Add bread cubes and stir.
  3. Pour into greased 1-1/2 quart casserole, sprinkle with nutmeg; place in pan of hot water and bake in a moderate oven, 350 F., for 50 minutes.
  4. NOTE: I had to bake mine for a good deal longer, more like 75 minutes. Bake until knife inserted in center comes out reasonably clean, and pudding is puffed up a bit.
