Chef mariajane's Note:
The only thing more comforting than a warm bread pudding on a cold day is one drizzled with a warm Amaretto sauce. The tartness of cranberries is a wonderful contrast to the sweeter elements of this dish, while the nuttiness of almonds and Amaretto takes it from "comforting" to gourmet, especially when matched with the rich apple and caramel flavors of Domaine Pinnacle Ice Cider from Quebec, Canada.
