Got this recipe from the Panera Bread web site. I love bread pudding and always looking for great recipes. I haven't made it yet but wanted to store it here.

This certainly wasn't the kind of bread pudding I'm used to, but that didn't detract from it's great taste! I did substitute 3/4 of a 1-pound loaf of nutty, whole grain bread for the cinnamon swirl kind, then added 2 teaspoons of ground cinnamon & a cup of dark raisins to help make up for the intended bread's flavor! Also used a blackberry jam! Absolutely wonderful combo of flavors! Thanks for sharing the recipe! [Made & reviewed during this Spring's Pick A Chef event]
