5 slices of white bread cut into pieces
4 cups rhubarb, diced
5 eggs
1 1/2 cup sugar
1/2 c half & half
1/4 c butter or margarine

Put bread and rhubarb into a greased 9 x 9 glass pan. Blend eggs, sugar, cream, butter and spices in blender until smooth. Pour over bread and rhubarb. Place glass pan in another pan with water so water comes up about 1” on outside of 9 x 9 pan. Bake about 45 – 60 minutes until done. Knife inserted near center should come out clean. About half way through baking time stir bread and rhubarb in pan bringing outside to center and center to outside to insure even baking.

Serve warm with lemon sauce, cream or ice cream
