This is one for chocolate version: 2 cups milk, scalded; 4 slices day-old bread; 1 egg, beaten slightly; 2 tbls. cocoa, heaping; 1/3 cup sugar; 1/8 teaspoon salt; 1 t. vanilla. [This recipe may be doubled and cooked in microwave oven. If so, check after 10 min. on HIGH. It will probably be done.] Heat regular oven to 350. Spray small casserole or loaf dish with non-stick spray, or grease well with butter or margarine. Beat egg, adding a little scalded milk while beating, then decant into rest of milk. Add bread, with crust removed, broken in small pieces, to milk/egg mixture. Add this to dry ingredients which have been mixed together. Put into dish and bake, uncovered, for 1/2 hour. Serve with hard sauce or one of your choice. This recipe was from my mother and mother-in-law (at separate times). Mother also made one without cocoa, using raisins. I can't find that one.

This is a great and easy recipe for bread pudding.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease a 9x13 cake pan. Tear bread into pieces and place in pan. Pour 3 cups milk over all, let set 20 minutes. Combine remaining 4 cups milk,2 eggs and pudding mix with wire whisk. Pour over bread mixture, patting bread down as necessary to coat all pieces. Bake 45 min to 1 hour. If you like more cinnamon in your bread pudding, you can add some to the milk before baking. Top with a sauce made out of 3 cups milk, 2 tsp rum flavor or vanilla and 1 pkg instant vanilla pudding. Serve with a dollop of whip cream or cool-whip. This is very yummy and I get a lot of requests to make this. (06/07/2005)
