Pairs Well With
I made this bread pudding to use up the reat of my Pumpkin Pie Brioche from the HealthyBreadin5 baking group, but you could use any type of bread you like! I made individual servings in small reamekins, but you could easily make it into one large pudding. If you plan to do so, I'd double this recipe and increase the baking time to 40-50 minutes.
