Bread and Wine Dessert


This dessert will vary depending on the kind of wine you use. Whatever you choose, its a rich, classy dessert.

You will need:
2 beaten eggs
1/4 cup of red wine (Burgundy or Chianti make for a mellow flavor while a sweet red like Marsala will make a delicate sweet flavor)
6 1/4 inch pieces of French bread.
1/2 cup of raisins
1/3 cup red wine( yes more)
1/4 cup of good honey
1/4 teaspoon of ground cloves
Sifted Powdered (Confectioner's)Sugar.

In a shallow dish combine the eggs and 1/4 cup of wine. Dip the bread slices in the mix.
In a 10 inch skillet cook the bread in hot butter on both sides til its golden.(You can use pareve margarine )
After all bread is golden and done through, remove to a warm plate.. keep warm.
Now put your raisins, the rest of the wine, honey and cloves into the same skillet.. no need to clean between.
Cover this and cook on low for around 15 minutes, checking to be sure its ok.
Put each slice of bread in its own serving bowl, pour on a little bit of the sauce you have made and sprinkle with powdered sugar. Serves 6 with one slice each.. or 3 with 2 slices each.
Bon Appetite!
