It is Autumn. I have started a bit of baking and out come the candles and fall flowers.
I love the scent of burning candles in my kitchen from early morning when I am drinking my coffee to late evening.
The recipe is easy and a great use for left over crusty bread.
4 eggs beaten
2 1/4 cups milk
1/2 cup sugar
1 T pure vanilla extract
1/2 tsp cardaman or ground cinnamon
Mix & beat those together and set aside
In an ungreased 2 qt baking dish toss 4 cups of French Bread cubes or any crusty bread and 1/3 cup dried fruit of your choice. Pour the egg mxture over the bread cubes.
Bake in 350 oven about 45 minutes or until a knife inserted in the pudding comes out clean. Cool. Serve warm with your favorite sauce or whipped cream. Makes 8 servings.
