French Toast Bread Pudding

This is a recipe my mother came up with after we fell in love with something similar at a restaurant when I was a child. It's always a big hit at brunch, and is really good leftover. I recommend soaking it overnight, as it gives the pudding a little extra moisture.

1 C heavy cream
1 C whole milk
4 large eggs
1/4 tsp salt
2-3 Tbs sugar
1 tsp vanilla
1 tsp cinnamon
10-12 oz cinnamon challah, cut into slices

Beat together all ingredients except the bread. Break the bread into large chunks and piece it into a greased 8" square baking pan. Pour the egg mixture over the bread. Cover and let soak in the refrigerator at least one and a half hours, or overnight. Bake at 350 degrees for approximately 50 minutes, or until the top is golden brown.
