 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
    3      slices        day old bread -- cubed
      3/4  cup           raisins
    2      cups          milk
      1/2  cup           sugar
    2      Tablespoons   butter or margarine
      1/4  teaspoon      salt
    2                    eggs
    1      teaspoon      vanilla extract
                         LEMON SAUCE:
      3/4  cup           sugar
    2      Tablespoons   cornstarch
    1      cup           water
    3      Tablespoons   lemon juice
    2      teaspoons     grated lemon peel
    1      Tablespoon    butter or margarine
 Toss bread and raisins in an ungreased 1 1/2 quart baking dish.  In a
 saucepan, combine milk, sugar, butter and salt; cook and stir until butter
 melts.  Remove from heat.  Whisk eggs and vanilla in a small bowl; gradually
 stir in a small amount of the hot mixture.  Return all to the pan and mix
 well.  Pour over bread and raisins.  Set the dish in a larger baking pan; add
 1 inch of hot water.  Bake, uncovered at 350 for 50-60 minutes or until a
 knife inserted near the center comes out clean.  For sauce, combine the sugar
 and cornstarch in a saucepan.  Stir in water until smooth; bring to a boil
 over medium heat.  Boil for 1-2 minutes, stirring constantly.  Remove from
 the heat; stir in lemon juice, peel and butter until butter melts.  Serve
 over warm or cold pudding.  Refrigerate any leftovers.  Yield 6 servings.
