El Torito's Natillas (Bread Pudding)
10 slices white bread
1 T. gelatin
6 cups milk
6 egg yolks
3 whole eggs
1 1/2 cups sugar
1/2 cup raisins
2 T. grated orange peel
1 T. vanilla
1/4 tsp. salt
2 T butter

Bread should be very dry. If soft, dry out in a warm oven. Cut into bite-size pieces. Sprinkle gelatin over 1/4 cup cold milk and let stand until softened. Beat egg yolks and whole eggs with some of the remaining milk until well blended.
Combine egg mixture, all of milk, soltened gelatin, sugar, raisins, orange peel, vanilla and salt in large saucepan. Heat until warm.
Grease 13x9-inch baking pan with butter. Place bread in even layer in pan. Pour warm mixture over bread and press bread so it will absorb liquid.
Bake at 350 degrees for 35 to 45 minutes. Serve warm. Makes 12 servings.

This recipe was in the LA Times newspaper,
probably back in the 1970's or 1980's.
The recipe was prepared by a friend and
it was good. I have never made it, but you
might try it or experiment with the ingredients.
She also served a warm Gran Marnier sauce over
it, but I don't have the recipe for the sauce.

Good luck!
