• 8 slices of bread
  • ⅓ C. Raisins
  • 2 tsp. Cinnamon
  • 1 ½ C. Milk
  • ¼ C. Heavy whipping cream
  • 2 Large eggs
  • ¼ C. Granulated sugar + some for topping
  • 2 Tbsp. Butter softened


  • Cut the crust off of the pieces of bread, butter one side of each slice, and cut the slices in half diagonally to form triangles.
  • Place a layer of the bread slices butter side up in a well greased 9×9 baking dish.
  • Sprinkle half of the raisins and cinnamon over the layer of bread.
  • Add the second layer of bread on top of the first and top with the remaining raisins and cinnamon.
  • In a saucepan, warm the milk and heavy whipping cream, but do not allow it to boil.
  • In a bowl, whisk together the eggs and sugar.
  • Slowly add a little of the warmed milk mixture to the bowl with the egg mixture, and whisk well to combine.
  • Once the egg mixture has been tempered, whisk it into the milk mixture in the saucepan once removed from the heat.
  • Pour the custard mixture over the bread in the baking dish, and allow it to sit for 30 minutes to set.
  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees, and bake for 30 minutes, or until golden brown and cooked through.
  • Enjoy!
