A peachy (oops! I mean peary) day

Here is a recipe for the pudding we made yesterday.

Pear and Banana Bread Pudding

4 cups of old bread cubed (not too big, not to little, cubes about 1.5cm square)
2 cups of milk
Half a cube of butter (add a fat dash of salt if you used unsalted butter)
½ cup sugar
3 eggs
A teaspoon of vanilla
A large ripe banana, sliced thinly (or two small)
Two pears, peeled and diced

Scald the milk, and melt the butter in it. Whisk in the sugar. Pour it over the bread and let it sit for about 10 minutes. Whisk the eggs and vanilla, and add them to the bread and milk. In a well greased dish, layer the bread mixture and a layer of bananas and pears twice, ending with a bread layer. Bake it at 350 for about 50 minutes, until a knife inserted in the middle comes out clean, and the bread tips are nicely browned.
