Ingredients

  • 6

    slices day-old bread

  • 2

    tablespoons butter, melted

  • 1/2

    cup raisins, optional

  • 4

    eggs, beaten

  • 2

    cups milk

  • 3/4

    cup white sugar

  • 1

    teaspoon ground cinnamon

  • 1

    teaspoon vanilla extract

Directions

Preheat oven to 350°F. Break bread into small pieces into an 8 inch square baking pan. Drizzle melted butter or margarine over bread. If desired, sprinkle with raisins. In a medium mixing bowl, combine eggs, milk, sugar, cinnamon, and vanilla. Beat until well mixed. Pour over bread, and lightly push down with a fork until bread is covered and soaking up the egg mixture. Bake in the preheated oven for 45 minutes, or until the top springs back when lightly tapped.
