Looking for a great bread pudding recipe. One that doesn't contain liquor, but has LOTS of raisins! Anyone got one they'll share? The richer the better! Thanks!

Go to Cooks. com there's a very good Microwave Bread Pudding recipe. I like to use 12 grain bread, more raisins ( or craisins are good also) you can also use powdered milk and Egg Beaters with this recipe with good results and leave out the salt.
Old Fashioned Bread Pudding
2 cups milk
3 eggs, beaten
1/3 cup sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
4 slices white bread, without crust
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 cup raisins, optional
Heat milk over low heat until hot, but not boiling. In a bowl, combine eggs, sugar, and salt; stir well. Gradually stir about 1/4 of the hot milk to the egg mixture and stir in. Add remaining milk, stirring constantly. Stir in vanilla.
Place bread slices in a buttered baking dish, (sprinkle raisins over bread, if used), about 2-quart size. Pour the milk mixture over bread. Combine cinnamon and nutmeg; sprinkle over pudding mixture. Bake, uncovered, at 300° for about 50 minutes, or until a knife inserted near the center comes out clean. Serve warm with vanilla sauce or other dessert sauce, if desired.
I have an old family recipe my Popa used to make. We don't like it with raisins, but you could add.
2 eggs, beaten
1 1/2 Cups sugar
1 1/2 Cups milk
2 Tbsp Flour
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp vanilla
5 slices of white bread torn into bite size pieces(original recipe calls for 4 slices, but I prefer a little thicker)
Mix all ingredients, bread last, and pour into 8 x 11 cake pan. I also use about 8 - 10 pats of butter on top, then sprinkled heavily with cinamon (pretty well covering it)
Bake at 450 for 20 min
As a kid we served warm from the oven with cold milk over it, now I like it warm with ice cream! Yum! Not for calorie counters! ENJOY!
Here's a pudding recipe in the slow cooker.
Slow cooker bread pudding
This cinnamon and nutmeg spiced bread pudding is made in the slow cooker, with bread cubes, eggs, milk, and optional raisins.
· 4 cups French bread cubes, toasted
· 2 1/2 cups milk, scalded, cooled slightly
· 2 eggs, beaten
· 3/4 cup sugar
· 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
· dash nutmeg
· dash salt
· 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
· 2 tablespoons melted butter
· 1/2 cup raisins, optional
· dessert sauce or whipped cream for garnish
Lightly butter the slow cooker then add bread cubes. In a small bowl, whisk together the scalded milk, eggs, sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, salt, vanilla, and melted butter. Pour milk mixture over the bread cubes then add raisins, if desired. Gently, using a large spoon or spatula, press bread cubes down into mixture so all bread pieces will soak up milk mixture. Do not stir. Cover and cook on LOW setting for 5 to 6 hours, until bread pudding is set. Serve with a dessert sauce (links below) or whipped cream.
