Orange Bread Pudding

Made with seven slices of buttered bread.

I couldn’t actually find a brandy sauce recipe in this box, so here’s one from the December 15, 1974 edition of the Oxnard (California) Press Courier:

Brandy sauce: Heat 1 cup sugar, 1/2 cup half and half, 1/2 cup butter and 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract until it comes to a boil. Stir in 2 tablespoons brandy. Serve hot.

From a box sold in Nampa, Idaho.

Remove crusts from 7 slices bread. Butter the slices generously, break them into pieces, and place in a greased 8 inch casserole.

Sprinkle them with 1 Tbsp. grated orange rind and grated rind of 1 lemon .

Beat 4 eggs with 1/2 cup sugar.

Add 2 cups orange juice; the juice of 1 lemon should be part of the 2 cups; and beat again.
