Strawberry French Toast Bread Pudding

I had extra homemade challah, and decided to make with it a recipe I had been wanting to try for a while, Berry French Toast Bake from TASTY.

I didn’t have any fresh fruit, so I had to revise the recipe based on the frozen berries I had at home. 

Here is the recipe, with my edits/suggestions in red. I also crossed out parts of the original recipe that I didn’t use
