Bread Pudding with Vanilla Butter Sauce

Bread Pudding with Vanilla Butter Sauce
From: LVgeogeek

bread, cubed (it was about 6 slices)
appx 4 Tablespoons butter, melted
1/2 Cup or so of raisins
4 eggs, beaten
2 Cups of milk
3/4 Cup sugar (I use pure cane sugar, not white granulated)
1 heaping teaspoon of ground cinnamon
2 Tablespoons pure vanilla extract

Set the oven to 350 F

Place cubed bread in a baking dish and sprinkle raisins over the top then drizzle the melted butter over the bread.

In a bowl combine the eggs, milk, sugar, cinnamon. I beat the stuff with a whisk until combined well.Pour the mixture over top of the bread cubes.

Let it stand for a bit while the bread absorbs some of the mixture.

Bake for appx 45 minutes.

Let cool and enjoy a tasty desert.

I topped it with a Vanilla Butter Sauce
1 stick butter
1/2 Cup milk
Powdered sugar, about 1.5 Cups worth added in as I went along
appx 1 Tablespoon of cornstarch

Melt the butter in a saucepan, add the milk and vanilla and heat

Add powdered sugar in 1/2 Cup increments and whisk in.

After the powdered sugar is in, the sauce will still be thin, add about 1 Tablespoon of cornstarch and whisk in, it will thicken up.

Drizzle over warm bread pudding.

Store leftover sauce in a jar in the 'fridge. Nice thing is the sauce won't separate and get all weird when cold.
