Bread Pudding with Brandy Sauce

Often the bread pudding you get in a restaurant is dry, has too much cinnamon, or is too sticky. Perhaps this recipe will be a good one since of course it would be home made and fresh, there doesn’t appear to be too much cinnamon, and of course there’s that brandy sauce. :-)
