Panettone Bread Pudding with Amaretto Sauce

I absolutely love bread pudding but have never been able to make it successfully until now! I was so excited to acutally have it turn out this time. It was so delicious. This is a great base recipe that I am going to add different things to (white chocolate, raisins, snickers, etc...). One note, I couldn't find Panettone Bread, so I just used French Bread.

Panettone Bread Pudding with Amaretto Sauce
By Giada De Laurentiis
1/2 cup whipping cream
1/2 cup whole milk
3 tablespoons sugar
1/4 cup amaretto liqueur or amaretto flavoring
2 teaspoons cornstarch
Bread Pudding:
1 (1-pound) loaf panettone bread, crusts trimmed, bread cut into 1-inch cubes
8 large eggs
1 1/2 cups whipping cream
2 1/2 cups whole milk
1 1/4 cups sugar
To make the sauce: Bring the cream, milk, and sugar to a boil in a heavy small saucepan over medium heat, stirring frequently. In a small bowl, mix the amaretto and cornstarch to blend and then whisk into the cream mixture. Simmer over medium-low heat until the sauce thickens, stirring constantly, about 2 minutes. Set aside and keep warm. (The amaretto sauce can be made 3 days ahead. Cover and refrigerate. Rewarm before serving.)
To make the bread pudding: Lightly butter a 13 by 9 by 2-inch baking dish. Arrange the bread cubes in the prepared dish. In a large bowl, whisk the eggs, cream, milk, and sugar to blend. Pour the custard over the bread cubes, and press the bread cubes gently to submerge. Let stand for 30 minutes, occasionally pressing the bread cubes into the custard mixture. (Recipe can be prepared up to this point 2 hours ahead. Cover and refrigerate.)
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
Bake until the pudding puffs and is set in the center, about 45 minutes. Cool slightly. Spoon the bread pudding into bowls, drizzle with the warm amaretto sauce, and serve.

My boys love making their grandma's bread pudding that is loaded with cinnamon. Instead of a sauce, they use the flavored coffee creamers~ This recipe looks so rich and good...
