1 loaf of white bread, with edges cut off and cut into cubes (can use 6 cups of stale bread)
3 cups cream (separated into 2 cups and 1 cup)
1 cup brown or white sugar
1 tsp. vanilla essence
1 cup raisins
Ground cinnamon, to taste
Canned cherries, for garnish
The first step is to preheat the oven to 350 °F and have a greased and floured medium-sized Pyrex pan ready. Slowly pour 2 cups of milk over the bread, giving it time to absorb, then stir and set aside. In a separate bowl, mix the remaining milk with eggs, sugar and cinnamon to taste. Pour this mixture over the bread mixture, stir well and add the raisins. Place the dough in the Pyrex pan and put a few cherries on top for decoration. Bake for 35 minutes, or until a knife inserted in the center comes out clean.
