Bread Pudding: cut bread into large cubes into a greased 9x13 baking dish. Then mix together the cream, milk, eggs, vanilla, cinnamon, & brown sugar. Pour over the bread and allow to sit for about 30 minutes to 3 hours or cover & refrigerate over night if you would like depending on how much time you have.
When you are ready to cook this then add your berries, lemon juice & lemon zest and mix them into the mixture well. Then pat mixture down and put into a preheated 350 degree oven. Bake for 55 to 60 minutes. Until a knife inserted in center comes out clean. Serve warm or cold with Lemon sauce poured over top.
Lemon Sauce: Melt butter in sauce pan. Add sugar, water, lemon juice & cook over medium heat until sugar has dissolved stirring constantly. (This doesn't take long, just a few minutes). Then temper your egg yolk by taking some of the sauce from the pan and stir it into the yolk (stir constantly) then add the yolk mixture into the saucepan and stir for 1 minute. Remove pan from heat and add lemon zest. Pour over bread pudding and serve.
