Easy Bread Pudding

This is a really easy recipe that I got from a family friend.  The orignial recipe is for a Blueberry Bread pudding, but since I didn't have any on hand, I made it without.  It is delicious both ways!  It is rich and hearty, without being too overly sweet. A yummy desert for a cold day :)

Blueberry Bread Pudding:
3 Tbsp. softened butter
¾ cup sugar
3 eggs
2 tsp. vanilla
3 ½ cups milk
8 cups bread cubes (sourdough or French.. I use half and half)
1 ¾ cups blueberries
2 Tbsp. sugar
½ tsp. cinnamon

For Golden Dessert Sauce:
3 Tbsp. Butter
½ cup sugar
1 cup heavy cream

To Prepare Sauce: Combine butter and sugar in saucepan- cook over low heat until butter melts.  Stir in heavy cream.  Bring to boil then reduce heat.  Simmer 5-10 minutes until sauce thickens.  Set aside.

To Prepare Bread Pudding:
Preheat oven to 350.  In a large mixing bowl beat butter and sugar on medium.  Add eggs and vanilla and beat 3 minutes.  Slowly stir in milk.  Place bread cubes in large bowl and pour milk mixture over bread.  Let stand 5 mins.  Stir in blueberries.  Place in un-greased 9x13 in. pan.  Combine sugar and cinnamon and sprinkle over.  Drizzle 1/3 cup of sauce over.  Bake 35 mins.  Serve warm with remaining sauce.
