Autumn…the year’s last, loveliest smile.—WILLIAM CULLEN BRYANT
Hope you are enjoying the outdoor beauty and rich colors, the cooler autumn weather, and all the fun things autumn brings! Some of my favorite things about Fall are pumpkins, colorful leaves, maple-scented candles, apple cider and donuts, warm sweaters, and the coziness of home. What are some of your favorites?
Pumpkin bread pudding just sounds like fall, doesn’t it? Especially if you bring in the flavor of maple syrup! I had made this dessert a few years ago, and thought it was okay, but I really wanted to see if I could improve upon it. I do like this new version so much better! It’s dense and moist, with lots of pumpkin and spice flavor. I really like this bread pudding with additional maple syrup drizzled over it, but you could also top it with caramel sauce or whipped cream.
