Bread Pudding with Crème Anglaise is my recipe of the day with Fall Flavors week. All this week we will be posting recipes using our favorite autumn flavors. There is also a giveaway so make sure you enter that at the bottom of the post.
The Weekly Schedule
Plum kuchen was my recipe for Monday. I am posting Bread Pudding with Crème Anglaise today and then on Friday I will finish up with Pistachio and marmalade Crusted Brie with Figs, a recipe which was inspired by one I saw Jacques Pepin make with brie cheese.
Of course, there will be other recipes you can find by searching social media for #FallFlavors, as on Thursday I will be posting with Improv Cooking. You can always check my groups schedule in the right hand margin. Other days I will be posting by chance.
This bread pudding is inspired by ones I have made and enjoyed in the past. I always enjoy a good moist bread pudding in the autumn, especially around Thanksgiving. The creme anglaise really adds a special touch and flavor. It is not really the same without that.
Occasionally things like brandy are added to the sauce, but in this case I have left it out to make everything family friendly. Sometimes that seems more appropriate for holidays anyway.
