I have been making this for about 45 years. This is the bread pudding I compare all others to and they all seem to come up a little short. I have this in the oven right now and the house smells wonderful!
Dice buttered bread into a 1 1/2 quart shallow baking pan. Sprinkle with brown sugar mixed with spices. Beat salt and eggs slightly. Gradually beat in scalded milk and pour over bread. Bake in preheated 325 oven for about 30 minutes or until set.
Serve warm with whipped cream, ice cream or cherry jam.
