3 Cups French bread cubed and partially dried

1/2 Cup melted butter

2 Cups whole milk

2 eggs beaten

1 teaspoon cinnamon

1/4 teaspoon salt

1/3 Cup brown sugar (dark)

Scald milk and butter together. Remove and set aside. Beat eggs, add

brown sugar and cinnamon. When milk is cool enough add egg mixture

making sure that the egg mixture does not curdle. Add bread cubes and

stir carefully, do not beat. Place in an 8″x11″ well−oiled pan. Place

in a preheated oven at 350 degrees for about 40 minutes, check with

toothpick. When done set aside.

White Sauce:

1 Cup whole milk

2 tablespoons butter

1/2 Cup granulated sugar

1 teaspoon vanilla

1 tablespoon flour

dash of salt

Mix all ingredients together and bring to a boil for 3 − 4 minutes,

stirring constantly. Set aside for 5 minutes, pour about 1/2 mixture

on warm bread pudding and place the remainder of sauce in a serving

bowl for those who desire that little extra. Best served warm, but

great at room temperature.
