Caramel Apple Bread Pudding
This is an incredibly rich, but delicious and eye-popping dessert for any autumn occasion. Every flavor that encapsulates the season is in one dish — apples sautéed in butter and brown sugar, croissants and custard to make a bread pudding filling, a freshly baked pumpkin — served with caramel sauce and ice cream. The recipe can be cut in half, if desired; just use the pumpkin only instead of the pumpkin and the individual baking dishes for extra caramel apple pudding. Click here to see more apple recipes.

Chocolate Bread Pudding
Every year for Christmas, my mom and dad pulled out all the stops and took the family to Galatoire’s on Bourbon Street, one of the few places in New Orleans where a jacket is still required for the gentlemen. Galatoire’s for Christmas Eve or Christmas Day dinner is no joke — not even Tennessee Williams could reserve a table in advance. We’d bribe someone to save our spot in line, and he or she would wait there for sometimes up to eight hours to score us a table. The men and women who crowded the parlor-like dining room were decked out with so many bobbles and flashing lights attached to their sweaters, ears, and even on top of their heads that they looked like lit-up Christmas trees. At the end of the meal, after every drop of béarnaise sauce had been mopped off our plates, out would come Galatoire’s famous banana bread pudding, made with lots of cinnamon and nutmeg and served with a whiskey raisin sauce. Bread pudding is one of my favorite holiday traditions, and I make it for my family every holiday season. It’s great for large gatherings and potlucks because it can be made up to three days ahead of time. This chocolate version is amazing when served with salted bourbon caramel. In New Orleans you’d make bread pudding with airy Leidenheimer French bread, but I find that brioche, challah, or even day-old croissants or king cake make for an outrageously decadent pudding (just don’t tell your momma it ain’t Leidenheimer!).

chocolate zucchini bread pudding
I discovered chocolate zucchini bread one summer day when I thought I had enough bananas for a quick bread and didn't, but instead had a big haul of zucchini from the family vegetable garden. I'm a huge fan of bread pudding but have never made it, so I thought, hmmm... If you can make a bread, you can make a bread pudding right? I adapted this recipe for pumpkin bread pudding from Smitten Kitchen and added in the basics of my chocolate zucchini bread recipe.

Easy Bread Pudding
Truth be told, I don’t usually order bread pudding when I eat out. To me, the fact alone that the main ingredient is bread brings the indulgence factor up to a level I’m not necessarily willing to venture to in public. And then it’s usually drizzled with caramel sauce or is packed with melty chocolate chips, and soon the entire conversation’s gone flat because I’m sitting there licking the spoon, followed quickly by the bowl. Solution? Make it at home. This easy bread pudding has big chunks of apple and heaps of cinnamon that mix well with the egg-y, sugary mixture it all soaks in. It’s got great texture, with the golden brown bread on top, semi-soft baked apples, and that light, custard-like filling. If you’re into raisins, they’d make a great addition to this. The hardest part about making this at home is waiting patiently while it bakes for an hour. Click here to see Cozy Winter Meals.
