  • 1 loaf Italian bread, or the equivalent of any leftover bread- leave it out for a day to dry out
  • 1 cup golden raisins
  • 4 large eggs
  • 7 large egg yolks
  • 5 cups milk, 2% or whole
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp allspice
  • 1/2 tsp kosher salt


  • Preheat your oven to 350°F. Butter a 9 x 13 baking dish.
  • Cut or tear your bread into bite size cubes, about 1 inch square, and pile in the baking dish. Sprinkle the raisins evenly over the bread. Then tuck them under to keep from burning.
  • In a medium  bowl, mix the whole eggs and egg yolks , sugar, milk, vanilla and cinnamon. Pour this over the bread and let sit for 10 minutes. Gently push the bread down into the egg mixture so all the bread is soaked.
  • Cover the pan loosely with foil. Bake on the middle rack of 350 degree oven for 1-1/2 hours.  After 45 minutes, remove the foil and let bake for another 45 minutes until the top is golden and the bread slightly jiggles in the center. The center will firm as it cools. Serve warm.


This recipe can be made a day ahead and reheated in a 350 degree oven for 30 minutes.
