My grandmother made biscuits every morning for breakfast and after a few days she would use what was left for one of my favorite desserts. I don't make to many biscuits from scratch so I use packaged and bake them especially for this dessert.
1Bake and completely cool biscuits. Cut each biscuit into four even pieces. Place into a large mixing bowl. Mix milk, sugar, eggs, salt and cinnamon (nutmeg) until well blended. Pour over biscuit pieces and allow to biscuits to absorb as much liquid as possible. Fold in raisins. Pour into a 9x13 buttered baking dish. Drizzle melted butter over pudding/biscuit mix.
2Bake until knife inserted into pudding comes out clean. Serve warm with or without choice of sauce (below).
350 degrees for 45-60 minutes.
3VANILLA, LEMON OR NUTMEG SAUCE
In a saucepan mix together 1 cup sugar and 2 tablespoons cornstarch. Gradually stir in 2 cups boiling water. Boil 1 minute stirring constantly. Stir in 4 tablespoons butter. Add for vanilla sauce; 1 teaspoons vanilla, for lemon sauce; 2 teaspoons lemon juice with 1 tablespoon lemon zest or for nutmeg sauce; 2 teaspoons nutmeg.
