      1 c  Heavy cream                       1/2 c  Sugar

-------------------------------BREAD PUDDING-------------------------------
      4 sl White bread                         2    Egg yolks
      1 cn Pitted sweet dark cherries          1 c  Sugar
  3 1/2 c  Milk                                1 ts Vanilla
      5    Whole eggs                     
 
  1. Make vanilla sauce: in a small saucepan, over direct heat bring 1 cup
  milk with cream and 1/2 tsp vanilla to boiling; just until bubbles form
  around edge. Remove from heat. In the top of a double boiler, with an
  electric mixer at medium speed, beat 4 egg yolks until thick.
  
  2. Gradually beat in 1/2 cup sugar, beating until soft peaks form when
  beaters are raised. Add hot milk mixture. Place over hot water (water in
  the lower part of the double boiler should not touch the upper part). Cook,
  stirring until coating forms on metal spoon - about 10 to 15 minutes.
  
  3. Pour into a bowl; place a sheet of waxed paper on the surface.
  Refrigerate 2 hours. Preheat oven to 350F. Trim crusts from the bread and
  cut in half diagonally. Drain cherries. Turn cherries onto the bottom of a
  buttered 2 quart 8 inch square baking dish. Overlap bread slices on top.
  
  4. Prepare custard: In a small saucepan over direct heat heat the milk
  until bubbles form around the edge of the pan. Remove from heat. In a
  medium bowl, with an electric mixer, beat whole eggs and egg yolks until
  light and foamy. Gradually beat in the sugar, 2 tablespoons at a time.
  
  5. Beat until well-blended. Gradually pour the hot milk, beating
  constantly. Add vanilla, mixing well. Pour custard over bread and cherries
  mixture in baking dish. Set baking dish very carefully in a large shallow
  pan on the lower rack of the oven. Carefully pour hot water to 1 inch level
  around dish.
  
  6. Bake, uncovered, 45-50 minutes or until knife comes out clean. Remove to
  rack to cool. To serve, spoon sauce over individual servings Makes 8
  servings.
  
  Note: You might try sprinkling cinnamon-sugar mixture over the pudding
  before baking. It's great.
