Was going to make this today, but was stumped by the "American Custard Dessert Mix" so, we decided it was best to make a regular bread pudding, instead. Woe is me! This is one of Sandra Lee's recipes that I found on the internet, I had already changed it a bit before I cooked it. I planned to soak the raisins in the rum, for 5 minutes, and then add them.
