you can make this ahead by cutting the bread and setting it out to dry 2 to 3 days ahead. Make the sauce one day ahead, then reheat before serving. Pudding can be made up to a day ahead, chilled, then baked and served warm. Baking this dessert in a springform pan gives an elegant look, but you can also make it in a casserole dish if you prefer.
