Yield:
12 servings

Ingredients
  • 1 cup raisins
  • 1/2 cup Jamaican rum
  • 1 pound, 4 ounces white bread, crust trimmed, cut into 1-inch cubes (about 10 cups)
  • 4 cups whole milk
  • 15 large eggs
  • 1 1/2 cups granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon grated fresh nutmeg
Directions

In a small bowl, combine raisins in rum and soak for at least 2 hours. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Lightly coat a 10 by 3-inch round baking dish or 2-quart souffle dish with vegetable cooking spray. Add the bread cubes to the dish and sprinkle the raisin/rum mixture on top.

In a large bowl, combine the milk, eggs, sugar, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Stir the egg mixture into the bread/raisin mixture. Cover with foil. Place the baking dish in a larger, high-sided roasting pan. Add boiling water into the roasting pan around the baking dish to a depth of 2 inches. Bake for 45 minutes. Remove the foil. Continue baking, uncovered, for 5 minutes, until top is golden and the mixture is slightly puffed or until a knife inserted near the center comes out clean.

Cool slightly before serving. If desired, serve with Creme Anglaise, flavored with rum to taste, if desired.
