  • Preheat oven to 375º F.
  • Toast bread in a toaster or by placing the bread on a large baking sheet and putting the sheet in a preheated oven for approximately 15 minutes.
  • Place prepared fruit and raisins in a bowl and sprinkle with 2 tablespoons sugar and 1 teaspoon cinnamon.  Put the fruit mixture in a large skillet and cook over medium heat until softened, approximately 15 minutes.  Stir frequently.
  • Coat baking dish with cooking spray.
  • Tear toasted bread into pieces (6 to 8 pieces per slice) and place in the bottom of the baking dish.  Pour cooked fruit over bread and spread evenly.
  • In a bowl, whisk eggs, milk, salt and remaining sugar together. Pour egg mixture over fruit. Allow bread pudding to set at room temperature for 5 minutes.
