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!
