I love this Christmas dessert - Eggnog Bread Pudding. The recipe is easy to prepare and can be customized (add chocolate chips, cherries, or whatever other flavors you may like)... and it can be prepared the day before baking.
1 loaf stale French bread
1 quart eggnog
2 Tbsp. Vanilla
1 C. raisins
1 C. sugar
Heat oven to 325 degrees. Grease a 9x13 pan. In a large mixing bowl, crumble the bread and pour the eggnog over it, letting it sit until bread is soft, at least 20 minutes and even overnight is okay.
In a smaller bowl, beat together the eggs, sugar, and vanilla and stir into the bread and eggnog mixture. Add the raisins and mix well.
Bake for 1 hour and 10 minutes, or until knife comes out clean. Let cool a bit before cutting. Serve with whipped cream to taste.
