  1. Butter a 2 1/2 quart shallow, oval or 2 quart shallow rectangular baking dish. Trim ends from bread, making the loaf 14 inches long. Cut loaf into 1/.2 inch thick slices, 28 pieces, etc. In a medium bowl, beat eggs just until foamy; add milk, sugar, salt, cinnamon, and nutmeg and vanilla. Beat until blended. Arrange 1/2 the bread slices over the bottom of the prepared baking dish; sprinkle with walnuts and raisins. Repeat with remaining bread and milk mixture.

Bake, uncovered, in a preheated 350 degree oven, until a knife inserted in the center comes out clean, about 1 hour. Remove pudding from water bath. Delicious served with whipped cream or rich milk (half and half).
