    1 quart scalded Milk
    1/2 pound butter, melted
    2 ounces Brandy
    10 eggs, whipped
    2 pounds of 1/2 inch cubed stale bread
    2-1/2 cups sugar
    2 teaspoons cinnamon
    2 teaspoons nutmeg
    1 tablespoon vanilla extract

    1. Cut bread a day ahead to allow drying. Put bread into 9" x 13" cake pan.

    2. Preheat oven to 325 deg F. Put milk and butter in pan and heat o stove until just below boiling, 180 deg F.

    3. Combine eggs, sugar and spices. Slowly add milk to egg and sugar mixture while whisking. Then add brandy. Add to bread using hands or a spoon to thoroughly soak bread.

    4. Bake until skewer or knife comes out clean, about 45-50 minutes

    I put mine in a water bath when baking. Also, I use Pepperidge Farms Cinnamon Raisen bread instead of plain bread. It adds another layer of flavor

    I'm afraid to try this. I would, of course, have to drink the brandy while cooking =)

    I add a bottle of stout to my chili and always buy 2 bottles - one for the cook and one for the pot
