This is a wonderful dessert; I have made it in a glass dish as well as individual porcelain tea cups. The custard is fabulous, and wins high marks from the family chef with 35 years experience. Tips from the chef: use brioche as your bread, soak your raisins in bourbon, cover w saran wrap, pat the bread into the custard to help the bread absorb the egg mix, and bake in a hot water bath. The Creme Anglais is a great make-ahead sauce. This is easy and special!!
