A holiday isnít a holiday without dessert (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dessert).
Iím the first in line for dessert, ask anyone in the family. Iím also the one that insists that yes, you can eat dessert before dinner. **grin** Thereís desserts galore that I love, from chocolate truffles (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chocolate_truffle) and trifles, to the most decadent of pies, cakes, and puddings (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pudding). My first love, though, will always be this simple recipe for leftover, stale bread that warms my heart.

1 loaf of bread (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bread)
1/2 cup of raisins (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Raisin)
3 eggs, lightly beaten
1/3 cup of sugar
1/2 teaspoon (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Teaspoon) allspice (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Allspice) or cinnamon
2 cups of whole milk (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Milk)
1 teaspoon of vanilla
Heat the oven to 350 degrees. Lightly oil a 9◊13-casserole dish (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dutch_oven) with an unflavored, non-stick spray. Tear each slice of the loaf of bread into bite size pieces, evenly filling the entire casserole dish. Do not fill to overflowing with the torn bread. Sprinkle the raisins evenly over the top of the bread. In a large bowl, mix all the remaining wet ingredients and pour over the bread and raisin mixture. Bake at 350 for an hour or until the center of the pudding is set.
Let cool before cutting into serving size pieces.
