Thomas Jefferson's Favorite Bread Pudding

Ingredients:

  • 1-½ pound cubed stale bread
  • 4 cups scalded milk
  • ½ pound butter
  • ½ pint brandy
  • 8 eggs
  • 3 cups sugar
  • ¾ tablespoon nutmeg
  • 2 tablespoons vanilla extract

Preperation:
1. Preheat oven to 350°.

2. Cut up bread while milk and butter are heating in a pot.

3. Combine liquids, eggs, sugar, and spice. Add bread last by submerging it using your hands so that it gets thoroughly soaked.

4. Transfer into a buttered 9 by 13-inch pan, pouring gently so that bread doesn't break up too much.

5. Bake until an inserted skewer or knife comes out clean, about 40 minutes. Serves 12.
