Folk Ways Farm Bread Pudding

I used leftover loaves from my baking last week. Feel free to use any kind of bread you have. Just tear it into chunks and leave it out for a day to get crusty. I would guesstimate 4-6 cups of bread.

Butter a 2 quart casserole dish and throw in your bread bits. Scatter over the top the following (or create your own concoction: 1/2 cup date pieces, 1/2 cup dried apple pieces, 1/3 cup shredded coconut, 1 cup chocolate chips (I do this so Daisy will eat it), & a small handful of flax seeds.

Whisk together in a bowl: 4 large eggs, 3 cups milk, 3/4 cup sugar, 1 tsp vanilla, 1 tsp cinnamon, 1/4 tsp nutmeg & a pinch of salt. Pour the mixture over the bread and let stand for 30 minutes, occasionally pressing down the mixture to help it absorb the liquid. Bake in a 350 degree preheated oven for about 55 minutes or until a fork comes out clean. If desired, serve warm with ice cream, whipped cream, or a caramel sauce. Yum. Or, like the photo above, slice into a hot buttered skillet until toasted and drizzle with maple syrup.
