Nana's Bread Pudding

I made this Bread Pudding for my family this Easter and then had to make it again because my son in law didn't get any. Even some that had not had any before liked it. Easy and good.  Here's what I do.

4 cups diced or torn bread.  I like to use Cinnamon Twist bread that can be bought in the store.  Any bread will do.  Put the bread cubes in a buttered casserole dish.

Sprinkle some cinnamon and nutmeg over the bread.  At least 1 tsp.

Mix together in a mixing bowl 2 eggs and 1 cup milk and 1cup heavy whipping cream.  You can use 2 cups of milk.  Add 1 cup of sugar and beat until frothy and sugar has dissolved.  Pour over bread and dot with butter.   Bake 350 degrees 35-40 minutes until knife comes out clean

Vanilla Sauce:
1 Stick Butter
1/2 Cup Sugar
1/2 Cup Packed Brown Sugar
1/2 Cup Whipping Cream
1 Tablespoon Vanilla

Combine all sauce ingredients except vanilla in a small saucepan. Heat until melted and begins to boil. Once it comes to a rolling boil, remove from heat and add vanilla. Mixture will bubble up, this is normal. Stir in vanilla and let cool. Pour over ice cream and bread pudding and serve. Store in a jar for up to 2 weeks and use as a topping on all your favorite desserts!
