1. Cut bread into chunks (you should have 8 cups) and let stand until slightly dry. Spread 1 tbsp. butter onto the bottom and sides of a 9-inch square glass baking dish. Place bread and berries in buttered dish and set aside.
2. Place half & half, sugar, amaretto and remaining butter in a saucepan. Cook over low heat until butter is melted and half & half is just starting to simmer. Pour over bread and let stand for 15 minutes. Meanwhile, preheat oven to 350°F.
3. Beat eggs and pour over bread mixture; top with almonds. Place filled dish in a larger shallow baking pan in preheated oven. Pour hot water into the larger pan until it reaches halfway up the sides of the baking dish.
