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.

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Grease a 9 x 11 x 2 inch baking pan with butter or margarine.

Cut or tear French bread into 1/2 - 1 inch pieces. Soak in milk and condensed milk until all milk is absorbed.
3
In separate bowl, mix eggs, sugar, almond and vanilla extracts and Amaretto.

Combine all ingredients, then stir in raisins. Fold in cinnamon - most of the cinnamon will stay on the surface (it doesn't have to be evenly mixed.)

SAUCE DIRECTIONS:
7
In a small bowl, dissolve the cornstarch in the Amaretto and whisk until smooth.
8
In 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.
9
Remove saucepan from the heat and add sugar. Whisk until sugar is dissolved and allow sauce to cool down before serving with bread pudding.

NOTE: 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.
