Bread Pudding

This is a recipe my mother made often when I was growing up. If you've never had it you must try making this dessert. It is the ultimate comfort food. It's a good way to use up day-old bread of any kind.

2 eggs, slightly beaten
1/2 cup sugar(white or brown or a combination)
2 cups milk
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 cup raisins, or craisins
4 to 6 slices of bread, cubed

Lightly beat the eggs in a mixing bowl. By hand beat in sugar, spices, and vanilla. Stir in milk, then add bread cubes and raisins. Pour into a buttered 1-1/2 qt. casserole dish. Bake at 350 degrees for about 45 minutes. Check to see that the center is still a little 'jiggly'. Don't overcook.
Cool and spoon into bowls with whipped cream on top, or a dash of heavy cream
