3/4cup white granulated sugar
1teaspoon ground cinnamon
1teaspoon vanilla extract


  1. Preheat oven to 350F.
  2. Break bread into bite size pieces and place in baking dish. Drizzle bread with melted butter and sprinkle with California raisins.
  3. In medium bowl, mix beaten eggs, milk, granulated sugar, cinnamon and vanilla extract until well blended. Pour mixture over bread and lightly push down until bread is covered with egg mixture.
  4. Bake 45 minutes, or until top springs back when lightly tapped.
  5. Serve warm or cooled.
