I have not tired this recipe YET and am posting it so I won't misplace it. I am planning to do so this weekend b/c I love bread pudding and I love cherries and it's a three day weekend. Yea! I will toast the bread in the toaster oven and bake in the oven rather than use a grill.

I made this tonight for dessert and it turned out great. I did do a little modifying though. Instead of the 1 1/4 cups of sugar, I replaced it with 3/4 cup of Splenda (Dad's a diabetic). I couldn't find the dried cherries so I substitued dried cranberries. I baked it at 350 for an hour. Great with sugar-free ice cream! Thanks!
