BREAD PUDDING WITH VANILLA
FOR BREAD PUDDING:
cups raisin bread, cubed
4 ounces melted butter
3/4 cup sugar
1/2 cup raisins
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 cup heavy cream
1/4 cup sugar
2 egg yolks
1/4 teaspoon vanilla
2 scoops vanilla ice cream
Cut bread slices into one inch squares and toast in a hot oven.
Place in the bottom of a casserole dish and drizzle with melted butter. Combine
remaining ingredients and pour over bread. Bake at 350 degrees until custard is
firm, approximately 45 minutes.
Combine cream and sugar
in a two quart saucepan and bring just to a boil. Remove from heat. In a mixing
bowl, beat egg yolks, flour, vanilla and salt; stir in a little of the hot
cream. Add this mixture to the rest of the hot cream. Cook, stirring constantly
until just thickened. Remove from heat and add ice cream, stirring until
melted. Strain. Serve with Bread Pudding.
