"Plain fresh bread, its crust shatteringly crisp. Sweet cold butter. There is magic in the way they come together in your mouth to make a single perfect bite."--Ruth Reichl

3/4 c. butter
20 bread slices
1-3/4 c sugar +2 tbsp. sugar
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp. nutmeg
1 tbsp. vanilla
1/4 tsp. salt
6 c. milk
8 eggs
3/4 c. raisins

Preheat oven broiler. Butter one side of each slice of bread and place buttered side up under broiler and toast - watch carefully. Cool on wire rack. Cut bread into triangles and arrange in two 8x8 in. pans. Sprinkle w/ 2 T. sugar. In a large bowl beat eggs, remaining sugar, spices, salt, and vanilla until smooth, about 3 min. Scald milk and with mixer on low add the milk in a steady stream. When blended, add raisins and pour over bread, allowing time for bread to soak up milk mixture. Bake in a hot water bath for 40 min. @ 400. ( I take a large 12x18 in pan and put about 1/4 inch of water in it and then put my 8x8 in pan inside this and cook 1 pan at a time.)

Brandy Sauce is a wonderful addition to pour over each slice. To make this - beat 2 eggs until light in color. Slowly add 1 C. confectioners sugar and set aside. Whip 1 C. whipping cream and add 1/2 tsp brandy and fold this into egg mixture.
