Peach Bread Pudding. This recipe makes two 9 x 12" pans of bread pudding, so I get to share one with a friend. I also make a sauce to go over the bread pudding. I've made half recipes of both the pudding and the sauce. 6 1/4 cup milk, 1 lg can sliced peaches, 9 eggs, 4 Tbs vanilla extract, 3 1/2 cups sugar (I don't add this much, usually about 2 3/4 cup), 1/2 pound butter or margarine, dash of salt, 1 cup raisins, 1# bread, dash of cinnamon. Mix milk, peaches and eggs in a large bowl. Add salt, vanilla, sugar and mix again. Melt margarine and mix with other ingredients. Sprinkle raisins in the bottom of two 9 x 13" pans. Don't need to grease pans. Pull bread into small pieces a bout 2" square. I don't remove the crust, it tastes as great as the plain bread. Don't squeeze or mash the bread. Add half the bread into each pan and pour half of the egg and mil mixture over the bread, making sure all the bread is thoroughly covered and moist. Sprinkle lightly with cinnamon - I also grate a little fresh nutmeg over the pans. Bake at 325 until golden brown. Serve warm as is, with milk or with ice cream. I'm adding the sauce recipe which is what I use. Sauce: 3 cups milk 1/2 cup sugar dash of salt 1 Tbs vanilla extract 1 Tbs cornstarch Nutmeg Mix milk and vanilla in bowl. Mix sugar, salt and corn starch in another bowl. Add to milk mixture and stir until lumps are gone. Put into a saucepan and simmer until mixture thickens. Pour over bread pudding and top with a sprinkle of nutmeg.

I love bread pudding. Thanks for the recipe, it looks like one that would be easy to change by using other fruits. Even better that canned peaches can be used, it is so difficult to find GOOD juicy, tasty, peaches. So often the peaches are mealy and tasteless.
I remember going south with my parents when I was a kid we would stop at road side stands and buy bags of fresh peaches. They were so juicy we would get so sticky and the peach fuzz would stick into our skin. It was sort of like rubbing fiberglass on your face. But the taste was so good we just could not stop eating them.
