Yield: 6 servings
  • 5 slices whole wheat bread
  • 2 Tablespoons butter or margarine
  • ¼ teaspoon cinnamon
  • ⅓ cup sugar, white or brown
  • ½ cup raisins or dried cranberries
  • 3 eggs
  • 2 cups nonfat milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract


  1. Wash hands with soap and water. Preheat oven to 350 °F. Spray an 8x8 baking dish with non-stick cooking spray. Set aside.
  2. Spread one side of bread with margarine or butter. Sprinkle with cinnamon. Cut bread into 1-inch cubes.
  3. In a medium-sized bowl, combine bread cubes, sugar, and raisins.
  4. Break eggs into a medium-sized bowl. Wash hands with soap and water after cracking raw eggs. Add milk and vanilla to eggs. Blend well.
  5. Pour liquid over bread mixture; lightly mix. Transfer mixture to prepared baking dish.
  6. Bake uncovered for 50 to 60 minutes or until the center of the mixture reaches 160 °F when measured with a food thermometer. At this temperature, a metal knife inserted near the center of the pudding comes out clean.
