This recipe is a little different from other bread puddings I've made but it is really amazing! The Amaretto flavor is wonderful with the cinnamon and the cream sauce, well I could just drink that stuff. Give it a try, you won't be disappointed.

8In a medium saucepan, scald cream over medium heat. Add the Amaretto slurry to the hot cream and whisk constantly. Bring mixture to a boil then reduce heat and cook for 30 seconds, whisking constantly.

9Remove saucepan from the heat and add sugar. Whisk until sugar is dissolved and allow sauce to cool down before serving with bread pudding.

10NOTE: I don't use raisins in this recipe but if you love raisins in your bread pudding then add them. It's good both ways.
