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.

The Inspiration

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.
