  • 6 slices whole-wheat or white day-old bread

    2 Tbsp. butter, melted

    ½ c. dried cranberries or raisins

    4 eggs, beaten

    2 c. milk

    ¾ c. white sugar

    1¼ tsp. ground cinnamon

    1 tsp. vanilla extract


Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Break bread into small pieces into a greased, 8-inch square baking pan. Drizzle melted butter or margarine over bread. Sprinkle with dried fruit. In a medium mixing bowl, combine eggs, milk, sugar, cinnamon and vanilla. Beat until well mixed. Pour over bread and lightly push the bread down with a fork until it is covered and soaking up the egg mixture. Bake in the preheated oven for one to 1½ hours, or until the top springs back when lightly tapped. Make sure it is baked thoroughly, with no liquid remaining and a toothpick or knife comes out clean when inserted in the center of the pan
