This old-fashioned pudding is a favorite in our house. It’s one of my daughter’s favorite desserts. Now she’s making it for her family.
Preheat the oven to 375 F. Spray a 1 1/2-quart baking dish with non-stick cooking spray. Set dish aside.
In a deep small bowl, combine the cereal with the melted butter, stirring until the butter coats the cereal. Set aside.
In a medium bowl, whisk together the eggs and sugar until well mixed. Whisk in the milk, vanilla, cinnamon, nutmeg and salt until thoroughly combined. Stir in the cereal and raisins.
Pour the mixture into the prepared baking dish. Place the baking dish in a larger pan with hot water up to the 1″ level of the baking dish.
Carefully move the baking dishes into the oven. Bake at 375 F for 30 minutes. Then carefully remove the dishes from the oven. Stir the pudding thoroughly then return dishes to the oven and bake at 375 F for 15-20 minutes more, or until a knife inserted 1″ from the center comes out clean.
Serve the pudding warm or cold. Recipe makes 8 servings.
This dish is so easy to make and, in comparison to its traditional cousin, can be made as low fat as you desire (using fat free Cool Whip and sugar free pudding mix). The molasses cookies add a spiciness not often found in a traditional pie crust. If you don’t like the flavor of molasses, you could always substitute ginger snaps, but the soft molasses cookies are a delicious addition.
