Ingredients

  • 5 cups day-old bread cubes
  • 4 cups scalded milk
  • 1/2 cup butter, melted and cooled
  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 4 eggs, beaten
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/2 cup white sugar
  • 1/2 tablespoon cornstarch
  • 1 cup hot water
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 3 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon lemon zest

Steps

  1. 1Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Spray an 8x11 inch casserole with nonstick spray.
  2. 2In a large bowl, combine bread cubes, 1 cup sugar, salt, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Mix in raisins, if desired.
  3. 3In another bowl, blend milk, melted butter, and eggs. Add wet ingredients to dry, and mix together without turning bread mixture into mush. Pour mixture into prepared casserole dish.
  4. 4Place casserole dish into a larger baking pan. Pour hot water into baking pan about 1/3 up the side of the casserole dish, creating a water bath. Bake for 45 minutes.
