Ashley’s Breadwinner Pudding with Caramel Sauce

12 cups good crusty bread, torn into cubes
9 eggs
Whole milk – 6-8 cups
1 Tb vanilla
1 ½ cups brown sugar
1 tsp cinnamon
Caramel sauce:
Caramel Sauce
Makes about 4 cups
2 sticks butter
2 cups brown sugar
2 cups heavy cream.

Crack eggs into bread.
Add sugar, vanilla and cinnamon.
Add enough milk to come to the top of the bread.
Squish well and thoroughly with your hands.
Pat down and bake at 350 for 1 hour or longer, until pudding is brown and puffy in the middle. If pudding looks brown but is not puffed, tent with aluminum foil until done.

Remove from oven and let cool a bit before serving with caramel sauce and whipped cream.

Melt butter in a saucepan. Add brown sugar and cream and whisk over medium heat until simmering. Remove from heat once sugar dissolves. Caramel sauce can be refrigerated, but will separate. Stir to mix before using.
