Prep Time:  20 minutes
Cook Time:  40 minutes
Ease of Preparation:  Easy

Ingredients:
4 to 5 thin slices of white bread (crusts removed)
2 tablespoons butter, room temperature
4 cups whole milk
6 large eggs
1 cup sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
Nutmeg & cinnamon to dust on top of custard

Directions:

Pre heat oven to 325 degrees
Butter each piece of bread and place butter side up in a single layer in a 9 x 13 baking dish.  In a medium sauce pan, scald milk over medium heat until bubbles appear.  In a large mixing bowl slightly beat eggs.  Stir in sugar and vanilla and whisk.  Very slowly whisk in hot milk.  Pour over bread in baking dish.  Sprinkle with nutmeg and cinnamon.  Place baking dish in the center of a pan of hot water as high as the baking dish.  Bake for 40 minutes or until knife comes our clean.

Notes from Paula’s Test Kitchen:  Recipe works best with whole milk, preventing custard from being watery.  Serve warm or cold

I'm a big fan of bread pudding as well as custard, so this recipe is perfect. It takes so little time to make a great dessert.

Paula, I am glad to know that I am not the only person who makes Easter Baskets for their adult children and mail them across the United States. My Daughter lives in Long Beach, CA and I not only sent her a basket but her husband and my granddaughter Reese. We also buy special Russel Stover Bunnies for each child too. My husband has the list in his phone... Sara .. Cookies 'n Crème.... Sidney and Stephen.. Peanut Butter Etc. It one of my favorite things to do for my kids.. no matter how old they get. And passing it along to my Grandchildren. It's even more special to me knowing we share a family tradition. Blessings and Happy Easter!!
