Why I Love This Recipe

We found this delightful recipe in Trader Vic's Book of Mexican Coooking, but instead of regular white bread, we use Hawaiian sweet bread, because it gives a better flavor.


Ingredients You'll Need

8 slices of Hawaiian sweet bread, cubed
6 cups milk, scalded
2 cups dark brown sugar
2 teaspoons ground nutmeg
3 teaspoons cinnamon
¼ teaspoon salt
6 eggs, well beaten
½ cup melted butter
2 teaspoons vanilla
½ cup chopped pecans
½ cup raisins
6 ounces cream cheese, cubed


Directions

Combine bread cubes and scalded milk in a buttered 4 quart baking dish; let bread soak for about 10 mninutes.


In a bowl combine the sugar with the spices and salt; stir in the eggs and melted butter; then mix in the rest of the ingredients.


Pour the mixture over the bread cubes and stir lightly until well blended.


Bake for 30 minutes in a preheated 350ºF oven.
