EASY BREAD PUDDING

1 pkg (4-serving size) vanilla pudding mix
4 tbsp granulated sugar, divided
3 cups milk, divided
1/4 cup raisins
1 tbsp butter
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
6 slices dry white bread, cut into cubes
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/8 tsp nutmeg

In a medium saucepan combine the pudding mix and 2 tablespoons of the sugar; blend in 2 cups of the milk.  Add the raisins.  Cook, while stirring, over medium heat until the mixture comes to a full boil.  Remove from the heat and add the butter and vanilla extract.  Place the bread cubes in a bowl and pour the remaining milk over them to soften; stir into the pudding mixture.  Pour mixture into a 1-quart baking dish that has been very lightly buttered. 

Heat broiler.

Combine the remaining sugar with the cinnamon and nutmeg; sprinkle over the pudding.  Broil about 5-inches from the heat for 4 or 5 minutes until the top is lightly browned and pudding is bubbly.

Yield: 6 servings
