    Place the bread slices flat in the pan and let stand for 5 minutes to soak up the liquid. Turn the bread over and let stand for 10 minutes longer. Then push the bread down so most is submerged. Set the pan inside a larger pan filled with 1/2 inch of water. Cover pudding with foil and bake for 35 minutes. Uncover and bake for 10 minutes more until top is browned. Serve with whiskey sauce.

    For sauce: in a small bowl dissolve the cornstarch in 1/4 cup water. In a medium saucepan, combine the cream, sugar, cinnamon and butter. Bring to a boil over high heat and cook, stirring frequently to dissolve the sugar, about 3 minutes. Stir in the cornstarch and cook until sauce thickens, about 3 minutes. Remove from heat and add bourbon.
