Cooking hint: when making bread pudding, bake extra biscuits and freeze for later.
About five baked biscuits or six if using canned biscuits, crumbled
Enough 2% milk to cover the crumbs
2 eggs, well beaten
3/4 cup sugar
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1 small box (individual size) or 1/3 cup raisins
1/2 stick margarine, melted
Whipped cream or whipped topping
Crumble the baked biscuits and put in a deep medium-sized baking dish. Cover with milk, just enough to cover crumbs well. Let this soak about 15 minutes and then add the eggs, sugar, vanilla extract and box of raisins. Mix well and mix in the melted margarine.
Bake at 355 degrees for 45 minutes. When cooled, slice and serve warm or cold with whipped cream.
