Well, I tried this last night for a potluck and it worked really well, so I thought Id share. 1 deep 8" tin (I in fact used a cookie tin, which worked excellently) Butter bread liberally (this tends to be the only way that you can butter it, as it falls apart otherwise). I prefer to leave the crusts on, but tradition would remove them - take your pick. Lay bread slices, butter side up, into bottom of tin. Cut pieces to fit to create a complete layer. Sprinkle with half a cup of sugar and half the raisins and cinnamon. Add a second layer of bread, placing pieces so that any gaps in the bottom layer are covered by slices in the second. Add the grated orange, the remainder of the raisins and another half-cup of sugar. Top with a third layer of bread and then the remaining sugar and cinnamon. Beat the eggs; beat them into the milk (thoroughly - otherwise you end up with eggy lumps in the final product). Pour mixture into tin - preferably, pour down the side of the tin to avoid washing off the top layer of sugar and cinnamon. It should come not quite over the bread - about half-way up the third layer is right. Leave to sit for an hour (not essential, but best). Bake in preheated 400 degree oven for 35 minutes. It should rise like a souffle; this will drop as soon as you take it from the oven, but dont worry! Serve hot with thick cream (not whipped, just heavy cream). -- Ewan McNay ~ email@example.com / (804) 296-9017 Gamer/socialist/neuroscientist/cook (not necessarily in that order) ECM5F@DARWIN.CLAS.VIRGINIA.EDU (EWAN) REC.FOOD.RECIPES From rec.food.cooking archives.
