Vintage Recipe Thursday is meant to preserve out-of-print, copyright-free recipes from old cookbooks, magazines, newspapers or your own original vintage family recipes. You're invited! Get the details by clicking to the Vintage Recipe Thursday Homepage. I post recipes from the Searchlight Recipe Book, first published in 1931. My 16th printing is from 1943. What will you post?

If you are a regular reader, you saw the bread roundup last October and you know I love to bake bread. I include bread in my dessert blog because there are so many delicious desserts which are made with bread. The vintage recipe I share with you today is one of those. Of course, you can make it with store-bought bread too.

Bread Pudding
1 cup bread cubes
2 tablespoons butter, melted
1 egg, slightly beaten
1/4 cup sugar
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract or flavoring
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
2 cups milk, scalded
1/2 cup raisins

Combine sugar, salt, vanilla, butter, cinnamon and egg. Add milk slowly, stirring constantly. Add bread cubes and raisins. Mix thoroughly. Pour into well-buttered baking dish. Set in pan of warm water. Bake in moderate oven (350F) about 1 hour, or until an inserted knife comes out clean. Cool. Serve with cream. If desired, the flavor may be varied by adding 1/2 cup cocomalt, and substituting 3 tablespoons sugar for the 1/4 cup. 4 servings.

  2. The recipes featured on my blog today are: Hillbilly Frosting, Hornet's Nest Cake, and Fast Chicken Broccoli Alfredo. I'll have to try the recipe here for bread pudding; it sounds very homey and good.

  3. I've never had bread pudding, but it sounds good! I wonder if it would taste as good with a gluten-free variety? probably not...

    Here's my post for this week, mmm:
