bread pudding is good ...

tried out a new bread pudding recipe last week. nothing too complicated.

stale raisin bread (or raisin croissants) torn into a pan ... 9x9 pan here.

wet ingredients include: (3) large eggs, (5) large egg yolks, 5 cups of half and half (or cream and milk mixture), cinnamon, vanilla extract, 1/2 cup sugar, 1/2 cup brown sugar (light)

mix in some golden raisins and brushed pecans into the the torn bread. pour in the wet ingredients above. bake in 350 oven inside a water bath covered for 45 mins, uncover and bake for another 40-45 mins.

serve warm or at room temperature with some creme englais and pure vanilla bean ice cream. i decided to bake with some ripe in season peaches on top (added them with 20 mins remaining to bake at the end).
