  • 8 slices of day-old bread, crusts removed
  • Butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup raisins or sultanas
  • 4 large eggs
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 cups whole milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • Pinch of nutmeg

  1. Preheat Oven:
    • Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C).
  2. Butter the Bread:
    • Lightly butter each slice of bread on one side.
  3. Arrange Bread Slices:
    • Arrange the buttered bread slices in a baking dish, slightly overlapping.
  4. Add Raisins or Sultanas:
