Recipe by Chef mariajane

The only thing more comforting than a warm bread pudding on a cold day is one drizzed 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 Amarertto takes it from "comforting" to gourmet. Delicious!!
