The hardest part of this simple dessert is waiting to eat it.
2 cups milk
3 tablespoons butter
1/4 cup sugar
Pinch of salt
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
2 cups bread cubes
Scald milk with butter and sugar. Beat eggs slightly and add salt. Gradually stir in the warm milk mixture and vanilla. Place bread cubes in a buttered casserole and pour the milk mixture over the bread. Sprinkle with nutmeg. Set the baking dish in a pan of warm water up to the level of the pudding. Bake at 350 degrees F for 1 hour.
