Bread Pudding

I included a picture of some bread pudding I made in my project 365 photos and I had people comment and email that they'd like the recipe, since I made it a healthier version, so here ya go:

Ingredients:
6 slices of day old bread (I used Sara Lee's 100% multi-grain bread)
2 tbsp I Can't Believe It's Not Butter ~ squeeze
1 c. Egg beaters
2 c. Skim milk
3/4 c. Splenda
1 tsp. ground cinnamon
1 tsp. vanilla
Can add 1/2 c raisins (but I left these out)

Directions:
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C)

Tear bread into pieces into an 8" square baking pan. Drizzle the ICBINB over the berad and sprinkle with raisins if used.

In a medium mixing bowl combine eggs, milk, splenda, cinnamon & vanilla. Beat until well mixed. Pour over bread, and lightly push down with a fork until bread is covered and soaking up the egg mixture.

Bake in the preheated oven for 45 min, or until the top springs back when lightly tapped.


NOTES:

Now, in the picture I posted (which is also here to the left), you can see that I obviously did not use wheat or multi-grain bread. That's because I was out when I made that particular recipe, but the next time I made it I did use the multi-grain (45 cals per slice) bread, but forgot to take a picture of it...which explains the white bread picture.

This is the easiest recipe ever, which you know has to be true, because I didn't screw it up...and that's rare! If you're in the mood for some comfort food, try this recipeIt's really good! I promise, you won't regret it!

Sounds good. Have you ever had bread pudding with a vanilla sauce? I had it once and can't find a recipe for the sauce anywhere. Thanks for sharing!
