Bread and butter pudding recipe with a custard mixture and cinnamon and raisins.  A brioche bread or butter flavored bread would be excellent in this pudding.

Serve the pudding with a whisky or bourbon sauce, or butterscotch sauce.

  2. Pour the milk and egg mixture over the bread in baking dish.
  3. Set baking dish in a larger baking pan then add about 1/2 to 1 inch of very hot water to the larger pan.
