Blackberry Bread Pudding

I should have been raised in the South because I have always enjoyed bread pudding.  Normally I make it with raisins, but we decided to use blackberries from our back yard.  This is one of those guilty pleasures that your family will LOVE!  You can also use raspberries or raisins if you prefer.
