Chai Spiced Bread Pudding Recipe

Nothing says the holidays to me more than the warming spices of chai. This bread pudding incorporates those flavors to make a dessert that everyone raves about.
Ingredients :
4 large eggs, room temperature, lightly beaten
2 cups 2% milk
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
3/4 teaspoon ground ginger
1/2 teaspoon ground cardamom
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon ground cloves
2 tablespoons rum, optional
6 slices day-old French bread (1 inch thick), cubed
1/3 cup slivered almonds
Vanilla ice cream or sweetened whipped cream

Preheat oven to 350°. In a large bowl, whisk together first 9 ingredients and, if desired, rum. Gently stir in bread; let stand 15 minutes or until bread is softened.
Transfer to a greased 8-in. square baking dish. Sprinkle with almonds.
Bake, uncovered, until puffed, golden and a knife inserted in the center comes out clean, 35-40 minutes. Serve warm with ice cream.
