Put eggs and sugar into mixing bowl and whip until doubled in volume.
Slowly whisk scalded milk into egg and sugar mixture.
Add this mixture to the bread in large mixing bowl and let soak for 20 minutes.

Put into a 13” x 9” casserole dish and bake at 350 degrees for 45 minutes to 1 hour. Check for doneness by placing a toothpick into the center of the dish. If it pulls out clean, the bread pudding is done. Serves 8-10.
