DIRECTIONS

  • Bread Pudding:
  • Combine the bread and the half-and-half in a large bowl. Cover and chill for 1 hour.
  • Grease a 13 x 9 x 2 inch baking dish with 1 tbsp butter; set aside.
  • Combine the eggs, sugar, and almond extract; stir well. Add the egg mixture to the chilled bread mixture, stirring gently. Gently fold in peaches and almonds.
  • Pour into the prepared dish. Bake, uncovered, at 325 degrees for 1 hour or until set and lightly browned. Let stand 15 minutes before serving. Serve with amaretto sauce.
  • Amaretto Sauce:
  • Combine the butter and sugar in a small saucepan; cook, stirring constantly, until the butter melts and the sugar dissolves.
  • Gradually stir about 1/4 of the hot mixture into the egg; add to the remaining hot mixture, stirring constantly.
  • Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, until the mixture thickens. Remove from heat, and stir in the amaretto. Let it cool to room temperature, stirring occasionally.
