How to make

  1. STEP 1

    Heat oven to 350°F.

  2. STEP 2

    Combine berries, 1/2 teaspoon sugar and 1 teaspoon cornstarch in bowl; spoon into 2 buttered (8-ounce) custard cups. Place bread cubes over berries.

  3. STEP 3

    Combine 1/4 cup sugar, half & half, eggs and vanilla in bowl with whisk; mix well. Pour over bread cubes. Gently press down on bread so cubes absorb egg mixture.

  4. STEP 4

    Sprinkle bread cubes with remaining sugar. Place custard cups into ungreased 9-inch baking pan. Place baking pan on oven rack; pour boiling water into pan to within 1 inch of top. Bake 45-50 minutes or until top is lightly browned. Remove custard cups from baking pan.

  5. STEP 5

    Combine 2 tablespoons sugar and 1/2 teaspoon cornstarch in 1-quart saucepan. Gradually stir in whipping cream until smooth. Add 2 tablespoons butter. Cook over medium heat, stirring occasionally, 5-8 minutes or until butter is melted and mixture comes to a full boil. Boil 1 minute. Remove from heat; stir in 1/2 teaspoon vanilla. Serve warm with warm bread pudding.
