Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Lightly butter a 2-quart baking dish. Put
3 cups of milk in a saucepan over high heat, and remove it when scalded.
Meanwhile combine the bread cubes, butter, cinnamon and raisins in a
bowl. Mix these well and pour them into the baking dish. Beat together the
eggs, sugar, vanilla and salt. Add the scalded milk, mix well and pour over
the bread cubes. Sprinkle the top with nutmeg.
Place the baking dish in a large roaster in the oven. Fill the roaster with hot
water halfway up sides of baking dish. Bake for 60 to 75 minutes or until a
knife inserted in the center comes out clean. Serve warm or cold drizzled
with the sauce of your choice.
