Been baking away the last remaining days of summer vacation:

Blueberry Bread Pudding

This makes four substantial servings, six if you put it in smallish bowls. My grandmother's recipe- not too fussy, not sickly sweet, so, so good.

2 C bread cubes 3 eggs
2 C milk dash salt
3 T. butter 1/2 tsp. vanilla
1/4 C sugar 1/2 C blueberries

Place bread crumbs and blueberries in greased 1 qt. dish (the shallower the better- more surface area means more crunch along the top). Scald milk with butter and sugar. In a separate bowl, beat eggs, add salt and vanilla. When the milk mixture cools (we put it in a larger dish and surrounded it with ice to speed things along) combine it with the egg mixture and pour over bread cubes. Set that dish in a pan of warm water and bake at 350 degrees for 1 hour. No blueberries? Try raisins, shredded coconut, jam, chocolate chips, or pineapple. Or all of it. How bad could it be?
