Bread Pudding

1 (12-ounce) can evaporated milk
1/2 cup whole milk
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon nutmeg
1 cup sugar
4 cups cubed stale French bread, cut into 1-inch cubes
1 cup raisins (optional)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Whisk the eggs, then add the milks, vanilla, cinnamon, and nutmeg and mix well. Add the sugar and mix well. Place the French bread with the raisins, if using, in a 9 x 9 x 2-inch greased pan, covering the bottom. Pour egg and milk mixture over top, making sure bread is thoroughly soaked and covered. Bake for 45 minutes. Serve warm with vanilla ice cream if desired.
