Ingredients

1 1/2 pounds 3/4-inch cubed stale bread

4 cups scalded milk

1/2 pound butter

1/2 pint brandy

8 eggs

3 cups sugar

3/4 tablespoons nutmeg

2 tablespoons vanilla extract

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Cut up bread while milk and butter are heating in a pot. Combine liquids, eggs, sugar, and spice. Add bread last by submerging it using your hands so that it gets thoroughly soaked. Transfer into a buttered 9 by 13-inch pan, pouring gently so that bread doesn't break up too much. Bake until an inserted skewer or knife comes out clean, about 40 minutes.
