Bread Pudding

So yesterday, my mother had made lasagna, and was going to make bread pudding to go with it. But she had forgotten to make it, and I personally love bread pudding, oh so much. So I commented; do you care if I make it? She was totally fine with that. For those of you who do not know what bread pudding is, either 1. Is living there life under a rock or, 2. Just a crazy person who has never heard of it. But anyway, I memorized the recipe from her telling me, how to make it. hehehe.

Home-Made bread pudding:
2 cups water
6 pieces of bread
2 tsp vanilla
6 eggs
12oz. can condensed sweetened milk
1/2 cup butter
cinnamon + sugar

Once you have all the ingredients together, start with putting the two cups of water onto the stove in a sauce pan, bring it to a boil. While that is heating up, gather together the condensed milk, two tsp vanilla, and the butter into a mixing bowl. Toast and butter the 6 pieces of bread, cut them into fourths.
Heat the oven to 350.
Once the water has come to a boil, pour it into a mixing bowl. Combine the mixture, until everything is combine well, and the butter is melted. Then add in the eggs, beat them with a whisk until a custard-like mixture is made. At this time add the small bread squares, gently mix this all together, be sure to cover the bread completely. Put the bread pudding mixture into a oven-safe dish, sprinkle with cinnamon and sugar and bake for 30-45 minutes.
The amount of time depends on the size of the dish, it is finished when you move the dish, and it is a little jiggly, but wont splash, if it was watery, then it is not finished.
Serve with half and half, or heavy whipping cream on top

Some-what funny story:
I tend to be clumsy sometimes when I crack eggs, and I want to show off to myself, so I get two eggs, and crack them at the same time, one in each hand. The first time was fine, but the second time I tried this, a small chunk of shell fell into the bowl, and sunk to the bottom of the bowl, I could not find it. I didn't want to try to fish it out, so I just carried on. Once it was finished, and cooled down, I got myself a taste of my creation, and on the first bite, I get the eggshell.
