Kneaders is a great bakery, cafe in Utah. Is it nationwide?? I am not sure. Anyway, they are famous around here for their baked goods, soups and desserts. Everything that I have ever had from Kneaders is wonderful. I got this recipe from my friend Sheri. I am not sure if it is the REAL Kneaders recipe–but it was fantastic! My hubby requested it this year for his birthday, instead of cake. Mmmmm—
**Tips** I did not use cream–that just seemed to rich for my tastes. I used half and half whenever it said cream in the recipe. I baked this in my Le Cresuet 9×13 deep dish baker. I had to keep it in the oven an extra 20 minutes. Next time I will use my roasting pan, it is bigger than a 9×13.

In large bowl combine cream, sugar, egg and vanilla. Cut bread into 1 1/2″ cubes and add to cream mixture, coating bread well. Let stand 30 minutes stirring every 5 minutes to allow cream to absorb completely.
5 cups frozen raspberries
Combine raspberries, sugar and apple juice, stirring until sugar is dissolved.
Layer a 9×13 dark baking dish 3/4 full with bread mixture, pour fruit filling over bread mixture, spreading evenly, top with remaining bread. Bake 40 minutes at 375 degrees. Serve warm. Top with vanilla sauce.
1 1/3 cup butter
Over medium heat melt butter, and add flour stir 10 minutes until it has a nutty aroma, do not brown. Add cream and sugar and boil till mixture is thick, remove from heat adding vanilla. Serve this wonderful sauce cold.
