4 large slice firm white bread or 6 regular size
2 cups milk or milk and cream
4 eggs
1/2 -3/4 cup sugar
pinch salt
2 tsp vanilla

Scald milk. Beat eggs lightly with sugar, vanilla, and salt. Beat in scalded milk, just enough to mix. Strain

over bread. Push bread down into custard a few times so that it soaks it up a bit. Sprinkle with cinnamon.

Cover loosely with foil. Bake in a water bath at 350' for about 1 hour. Remove foil last 15-20 minutes of baking.

Variation: Use lesser amount of sugar, lemon peel instead of vanilla, omit cinnamon, Use dried cherries instead of raisins.
