1Heat overn to 350. In a large bowl cream butter and sugar until smooth. Add eggs,nutmeg,cinnamon,vanilla and salt. Mix together thoroughly.
2Mold in 1/4 cup of raisins. Add bread crumbs and stir in liquid so the bread soaks up some of the liquid. Let stand for 5 minutes. Pour into a greased baking dish (I used a casserole dish) Top with remaining raisins and press into bread. Let stand 20 more minutes.
3Bake uncovered for 45 minutes.
While its baking make the sauce by slowly melting the butter and sugar together. Add a beaten egg and whisk together. Remove from heat and add brandy. Mix thoroughly. Pour on top pudding and serve. Great with a scoop of ice cream on top.
