  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Butter the bottom and sides of an 8 inch square baking dish with the melted butter.
  2. Toss bread with the chopped strawberries, and place into the prepared pan. Beat the eggs, milk, cream, strawberry preserves, sugar, and vanilla in a medium bowl until frothy. Pour over the bread and lightly press down with a spatula until the bread has absorbed the milk mixture.
  3. Bake in the preheated oven for 40 to 45 minutes, or until the top springs back when lightly tapped.

My family loves strawberries, but the thought of putting them in the oven did not appeal to me. The aroma while baking was pleasant. It was excellent. My son enjoyed it so much, he had to take it to go so he wouldn't miss out on his share. Topping with a little whipped cream or vanilla ice cream added to this heavenly delight.

WOW!! This a great dish using day old bakery french bread cubes!!! I halved the recipe and used a regular sized loaf pan. I let the bread sit with the berries about 20 minutes before combining with other ingredients. As per another reviewer's suggestion I added some ground cinnamon and a dash of ground cloves. I think this really gave added flavor to this dish. Sooo goood!!!! After baking, I had no soggy spots are crusty edges. I've never like bread pudding before because of the raisins and the eggy taste. But, this recipe is very tasty! I will be making this again since it is strawberry season now.

Fixed this for Mother's day, well what can I say, it was a hit... in addition I took fresh strawberries sliced with sugar and we put this on top... nothing left to bring home!!!

This recipe will be one of my standards from now on! Fantastic! I did change a couple of things. To make sure it is not soupy make sure the bread is very dry. I put it in the oven for 10 minutes. I also add 4 eggs instead of 3. I make it in a larger pan 9 x 12 and add more bread and strawberries and I add fresh blueberries. I don't increase the milk and cream except I use 1 cup cream. I think the cream is important for richness. I decrease sugar to 1/2 c. Comes out perfect and can be reheated just before serving if done earlier. I also keep it in the refrigerator for at least 1 hour before baking. I did it in the morning and left it 6 hours in the refrigerator and it was great.

This recipe was beautiful. It is sweeter than standard bread pudding, and I only used 2/3 cup of sugar. I also substituted strawberry yogurt for the cream. My entire family loved this pudding and it was pretty much gone in 24 hours.

This had great flavor! I used half of a loaf of leftover french bread. I also had to bake it for an additional 15-20 minute and it was still a little mushy. But, overall we really liked it, especially served with vanilla ice cream!
