Instructions

  1. Butter the bread generously with real butter, (never use margarine). Cut into small squares and place them into the bottom of a 1.5 quart oven safe dish.
  2. Sprinkle the raisins evenly over the buttered bread
  3. Mix all the remaining ingredients together and blend well
  4. Pour this liquid mixture over the bread squares in the casserole dish making sure all the bread has been moistened. Set aside for about 10 minutes to allow full absorption of the liquid into the bread.
  5. When ready to bake, mix together 2 tablespoons of sugar and 1 teaspoon of ground cinnamon or pumpkin pie spice and sprinkle evenly over the top of the pudding mixture.
  6. Bake in a pre heated oven at 350 F. (uncovered) for 30 to 45 minutes - or until a butter knife inserted into the center comes out clean.
  7. When done, cover and cool to room temperature and serve plain, or top with whipped organic cream, organic yogurt, or organic vanilla ice cream..

Conclusion

This recipe is simple, easy and delicious.

Don't worry about the calories, I always say it is not what is in the foods we eat, but the 'quantity' of foods we ingest that cause us to gain weight.

So, eat up and enjoy while you still can.

Hey D

Great hub. Most of what we eat now seems to be made of plastic. I too have noticed how long commercially made breads last. When I was a kid bread molded in a few days unless placed in the fridge. Now bread seems to be permanent. Now I have the time and I make my own for a fraction of the cost and healthy ingredients

Thanks for reading and your helpful comments. I have visited your hub on making bread. Thanks, it has been quite helpful. I am a pretty good cook, but this will be the first time for making bread.

I've never tasted Deli Swirl bread, but i will after reading your article. I tried making yeast bread, what a horrible mistake, Yuck, not only did it not rise, it tasted awful. My Mother used to make the most delicious bread pudding. Thank's for the recipe. Enjoyed.

Thanks for reading and your comments. Let me know how your bread pudding turns out. It is also good if you put some diced apples in it. I do make a wonderful bread pudding, but what i really miss the most is the home made bread. I am looking forward to experimenting to see if i can conquer that challenge.

If you like rye and pumpernickle, you will love that bread (even with all those nasty things in it).

The recipe sounds wonderful, the food on the shelves, not so much.

Very nice article pointing out how "natural" food products are a thing of the past. I've become very picky about what I buy now and check ingredient, additives, etc. on products I'm interested i on the internet. I used to make French bread every couple of weeks and use my food processor or heavy duty mixer (depending on my mood, I'm a Gemini). A bread machine will make bread with a hole in it.

Thanks for reading and commenting. Yes, food shopping can become quite tedious when you are a label reader, and looking for something healthier (or i should say: less poisonous). It truly is difficult to find anything 'natural' anymore, let alone foods that are actually grown in the USA. If the label says "packaged in the USA" this is to fool you into thinking it was grown in the U.S. They get all their ingredients from 3rd world countries and then label the cans to make you think that you are buying American made/grown products.
