A thriving industry was born in Pifford, New York, when the monks of Our Lady of the Genesee Abbey began baking their good bread for the retail market. Monk's Bread, as it is called, is baked in tall loaves of white, whole wheat, and raisin bread, rich in real homemade flavor and texture.

DIRECTIONS

Combine coffee, cream, and milk; bring to scalding point. Spread bread slices lightly with butter or margarine; do not trim off crusts. Cut in 1/2-inch cubes; add to coffee mixture. Beat eggs slightly; add sugar and salt; mix well. Add bread mixture and vanilla. Pour into 1-1/2-quart casserole. Sprinkle with nutmeg. Set casserole in pan of warm water. Bake at 325° for 1-1/4 hours or until knife inserted near rim of casserole comes out clean. Chill. Serve with plain or whipped cream. Makes 8 servings.
