What you will need:

1 stale french baguette
3 tablespoons butter, melted
1/2 cup raisins (optional)
4 eggs, beaten
2 cups skim milk
3/4 cup white sugar
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Slice baguette into half-inch slices and then rip each slice into smaller pieces. Arrange the bread in the bottom of an 8-inch casserole dish and drizzle with melted butter. Sprinkle raisins on top if desired. In a medium bowl, combine eggs, milk, sugar, cinnamon and vanilla. Pour egg mixture evenly over the bread and using a fork push push down the bread to ensure that the bread soaks up all of the mixture. Bake for 45 minutes until the bread is springy to the touch.
