This is another easy recipe to throw together. If you don’t like peaches, apples or cherries work great, but the amaretto sauce really brings out the flavors of the peaches the cinnamon bread. I served this with some bacon and home made applesauce
Peachy Bread Pudding w/ Amaretto Sauce – Serves 10-12 but can be made individually

Mix cinnamon and brown sugar together and sprinkle over the top of peach mixture.
Add almonds (optional)
Bake 50-55 minutes until puffed. Meanwhile, while baking start on the amaretto sauce. In a saucepan mix together the sugar, butter, flour and half and half. When melted and slightly boiling, pull off the heat and add the amaretto. Pour over finished bread pudding.
