Directions Step-By-Step

1
To make the sauce:
Bring the cream, milk, and sugar to a boil in a heavy small saucepan over medium heat, stirring frequently. In a small bowl, mix the amaretto and cornstarch to blend and then whisk into the cream mixture. Simmer over medium-low heat until the sauce thickens, stirring constantly, about 2 minutes. Set aside and keep warm.

To make the bread pudding:
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Lightly butter a 13 by 9 by 2-inchbaking dish. Arrange the bread cubes in the prepared dish. In a large bowl, whisk the eggs, cream, milk, and sugar to blend. Pour the custard over the bread cubes, and press the bread cubes gently to submerge. Let stand for 30 minutes, occasionally pressing the bread cubes into the custard mixture. Bake until the pudding puffs and is set in the center, about 45 minutes. Cool slightly. Drizzle with the warm bourbon sauce, and serve.
