I do not normally eat dessert but when in New Orleans and at Bon Ton Cafe it is a "Must Try"

Pre-heat oven to 375

Melt the butter and set to the side. Soak bread in milk: crush with hands until well mixed. Then add eggs, sugar, vanilla, and raisins, and stir well. Pour butter in the bottom of a thick pan 9x13 should do.

Bake until very firm. Keep checking with a knif after 45 minutes. Let cool, then cube the pudding for individual servings. when ready to serve add sauce and heat under the broiler until slightly borwned. Serve with whiskey sauce, a lot of it! HA!
Whiskey Sauce:

cream the sugar and egg until well mixed, add melted butter and continue to melt sugar. Add Whiskey to taste

Nancy, when I go to the local grocery this week to pick up liqueur they are all going to be turning their heads....Everybody will wonder what the heck is going on when I walk out the door with Bourbon, Whiskey, Irish Cream, and Beer....I just going to hold up a beer, and say, "Let's Party'!
