Expert Tips

Bread pudding is an old-fashioned baked dessert of cubed or sliced bread saturated with a mixture of milk, eggs, sugar and spices. This recipe has been simplified by using purchased toasted bread cubes.

Look for sweetened dried cranberries near the raisins and other dried fruits in the supermarket baking section.

The bread pudding can be assembled in the casserole and refrigerated several hours or overnight before baking it. The sauce can be made a day ahead and refrigerated; reheat it just before serving.
