Another treat from my grandmother's recipe box! Perfect comfort food for a cold rainy day. I made this yesterday and had forgotten how incredibly easy it is to make! Can be eaten warm, but we prefer it cold.

1.  Preheat oven to 325oF. In a mixing bowl, combine all ingredients and mix until sugar is dissolved. Place raisins in bottom of ramekins or cups, and then pour the custard mix on top. Sprinkle cinnamon on top after you have filled cups. Place ramekins/cups in a pan which can be used as a bain-marie (water bath). Place baking dish on the oven rack and then fill dish with enough hot water to keep the bottoms of your custard cups wet (approximately 1 inch). Bake on middle rack for 1 hour. Remove from bain-marie to cool. If you plan to refrigerate, cover lightly with plastic wrap.
