Spread bread cubes in a buttered 13 x 9-inch (33 by 23 cm) or 10-inch (25 cm) glass baking dish. Sprinkle berries over bread.

In a large measuring cup with a spout or a bowl, whisk eggs until frothy. Whisk in cream, honey, vanilla and cinnamon; pour evenly over bread mixture. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate overnight.

Pre-heat oven at 350 °F (180 °C).

Let pudding stand at room temperature while preheating oven. Bake, uncovered, for 30 to 40 minutes or until golden, puffed and a knife inserted in centre comes out clean. If top is browning too quickly, cover loosely with foil. Serve drizzled with more honey.

* Use hearty, bakery-style bread for the best texture. Pre-sliced, packaged sandwich breads tend to be too soft and airy.
