6 slices white bread
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1 1/4 cups sugar
3 cups half and half
1 cup heavy cream
1/4 cup granulated sugar
1 tablespoon cinnamon powder
1/2 cup packed raisins
Preheat oven to 320 degrees F.
Mix together the eggs, vanilla and 1 1/4 cups of sugar in a medium size mixing bowl until sugar is dissolved. DO NOT WHIP.
Add half and half and heavy cream slowly to egg mixture until well blended.
Mix sugar, cinnamon powder and raisins in a small bowl.
Lay white bread in a 9x13 inch deep baking pan.
Sprinkle the cinnamon/sugar/raisins mixture on top.
Poor liquid mixture on top, pushing bread down when it begins to float. Soak bread well.
Cover pan with foil.
Place on a sheet pan filled with water.
Bake for 1 hour or until pudding is firm on top and no liquid is showing.
Take out of oven, remove foil from pan. Let cool and serve.
It's takes a little work, but so worth it! It's one of my family's fav desserts. Very delicious, hot or cold.
