Bread pudding is rich, comforting and oh so easy to make with some stale bread, a couple of eggs, cream and one flavorful ingredient. This fall, make that flavorful ingredient seasonal, using pumpkins, apples, pears, squash and more.
Re-create these bread puddings at home with whatever seasonal fruits and spices you have on hand or that are in your local markets. Seasonal flavor inspiration is everywhere, so go out there and find it.
