The first week I was there, I received a huge bag with probably ten large loaves of artisan bread. They told me I could feed it to my chickens. After bringing it home, I realized that the bread was much too good to feed to the chickens, and anyway they didn't need to be eating that much bread. It's like chicken candy to them. So I rebagged it, gave some to my kids, and put the rest in the freezer. Yesterday I thought the whole family was coming for dinner so I thawed one of the loaves of seeded sourdough. It ended up with nobody being able to make it. So, what do you do with a huge loaf of white bread? You make bread pudding!
Beat the eggs well, then add the sugar and beat.
Beat in the vanilla, butter, and cinnamon, then the milk.
Pour over the bread cubes and stir in the raisins. Let sit for a few minutes so the bread absorbs some of the milk.
Pour into the baking dish and bake 30-45 minutes, or until the top looks brown and crusty.
