    This looks very similar to one I used to make years ago. I do wish you would consider some corrections though. Time to prepare is a little long at 75 hours. You say 1 cup of sugar, divided, but in the directions it's not that I could find. You also mention raisins in the text but not in the ingredient list. I haven't tasted it yet - getting ready to put it in the oven now though! Can't wait!

    There is, finally, a bread pudding I like. Of course, it is the amaretto that does the trick. I had a bunch of Devonshire cream and bread crusts left over from a high tea, so instead of making the sauce for the top, I just added more amaretto and topped with Devonshire cream. I can tell that it would be good with the sauce too. Most bread puddings don't have much flavor to me, they are just a vehicle to carry sugar into the body. This has flavor!

    Another tasty version of bread pudding. Since I'm cooking for 2 people, I cut the recipe in half; if you do so,be careful of the amounts specified in the directions - the computer doesn't adjust them.
