Winter weather brings back memories of Grandma’s house and her yummy baked goods. My dad’s mom always kept a stash of cookies in tins. They stayed surprisingly fresh although we can remember biting into a few stale cookies on our long ride home on a Sunday night!
One of my favorite “old fashioned” treats was bread pudding. My mom would make a warm bread pudding full of brown sugar and raisins. Warm with a little milk was my favorite way to enjoy this comfort food.
Making all flavors of scones, I usually end up with a few “day old” scones that I don’t feel comfortable serving to my guests. I decided to freeze them and pull them out later to make bread pudding. Instead of bread, I just break up my scones and used a basic bread pudding recipe. I make a variety of toppings to make the flavor just “pop”.
Below is my basic recipe for bread pudding and a great fruit topping recipe.
