  • 1 16-oz loaf French bread, torn into 1-inch pieces
  • 3 1/2 cups whole milk
  • 3 large eggs
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 3/4 cup raisins
  • 1/3 cup melted butter
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/3 cup honey


  • Preheat oven to 350°.
  • Place pieces of bread in a large bowl and pour milk over bread. Give it a gentle stir
    and let stand 10 minutes.
  • Whisk eggs in a medium size bowl; add sugar, raisins, 3 tablespoons butter, and
    vanilla and stir well. Pour egg mixture over soaked bread as you stir gently.
    You want the pieces of bread to hold their shape.
  • Pour mixture into a buttered 13 x 9-inch baking dish or sprayed with cooking spray.
    Stir together honey and remaining melted butter;
    drizzle over bread pudding. Bake at 350° for 40 to 45 minutes or until edges
    are browned and mixture is bubbly. Serve warm or chilled.
