Thanksgiving Swap Recipe

I needed a recipe for the Thanksgiving Swap and this is one highly recommended by Boodreaux the Cajun Cat. This is an old Southern recipe invented with the practical purpose of using day old bread. Mmmm what those cajuns can do with just bread. Boodreaux helped us prepare and test several batches of this. Here it is and it is totally Boodreaux approved!

Southern Style Bread Pudding

Preheat oven to 350 degrees


8 slices white bread cubed
2 cups milk
2 eggs
1 ½ cups sugar
½ cup raisins
1 can sliced peaches (drained, cut into smaller pieces)
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
2 teaspoons cinnamon
2 tablespoons melted butter

Grease casserole dish with butter and put the cubed bread in it. Mix in mixing bowl the milk, eggs, sugar, raisins, peaches, vanilla extract, cinnamon and melted butter. Pour into a casserole dish over the cubed bread and let set for about 20 minutes.

Bake for 50 to 60 minutes until pudding is set.

Top with ice cream or whipped topping if desired.
