Category: Breads

 Ingredients List

  • 1 Unsalted butter; softened
  • 1 c Plus 2 tablespoon sugar
  • 2 cn (12-oz) evaporated milk
  • - approximately 3 cups
  • 3 Eggs
  • 2 ts Vanilla extract
  • 1 ts Ground cinnamon
  • 3/4 ts Ground nutmeg
  • 1/2 ts Salt
  • 1/4 ts Cream of tarter
  • 1/4 ts Ground ginger
  • 7 Slices; stale, white
  • - sandwich bread, toasted


Place butter and sugar in large bowl. Mix with electric mixer on medium
speed until creamed, about 5 minutes, pushing sides down with a rubber
spatula. Add milk, eggs, vanilla, cinnamon, nutmeg, salt, cream of tarter
and ginger beating on low speed until batter is thoroughly blended, about
3 minutes.

Line the bottom of a ungreased 8 by 8 inch baking dish evenly with toasted
bread, breaking it into small pieces. Pour mixture over bread and let set
for 1 hour, patting down bread that floats up occasionally.

Bake at 450 degrees until very well browned and the mixture shakes like a
bowl of jelly when the pan is gently shaken back and forth, about 20 - 25
minutes. Remove from oven and let cool before serving. . Note: You can add
raisins, coconut or roasted pecans or some other types of nuts.
