Easy bread pudding

This is actually an egg custard with some bread in it, but boy o boy, is it delicious. I use up all the old dry bread I can find:

Butter baking pan (any kind will do - I use a round glass casserole pan)

1 1/2 cups dry bread
1 cup milk
1 handful golden raisins

Soak bread and raisins in milk; add more milk to cover if necessary. Now go do something so you don't obsess over whether it has soaked enough.

Preheat oven to 350

3 cups milk (you should have a total of 4)
6 eggs
3/4 cup sugar
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp cardamom
(garam masala is also good here)

Whip eggs, milk, and dry ingredients until eggs are fully beaten. Pour over the soaked bread. Bake at 350 for 45 minutes, or until it has puffed up and is completely cooked in the center.

You should probably refrigerate the leftovers if there are any. This makes a great substitute for your usual breakfast.
