Pumpkin Cranberry Bread Pudding Recipe

Baby, it’s cold outside!! Bring on the cute boots and scarves, sweaters, and gloves. My birthday is also always close to Thanksgiving so I enjoy this month despite the frigid temperatures. Cooking and baking for my extended family has always been my favorite Thanksgiving tradition. I love the chaos of it all. When I was little I was always the potato peeler. It was the worst, stinkiest job for a 10 year old but I loved feeling like I was contributing to the meal.

Pumpkin Cranberry Bread Pudding Recipe with Pumpkin Spice Vanilla Glaze

Now that I’ve been preparing the whole Thanksgiving meal for our family I’m always looking for someone sitting around looking bored. I swear my family tries not to make eye contact with me because they know I’ll set them down with a sack full of potatoes and put them to work.

As much fun as preparing the meal is, I enjoy revealing the dessert table afterwards. Isn’t this Pumpkin Cranberry Bread Pudding a gorgeous addition to your Thanksgiving table?! Whip this out and start pouring the Pumpkin Spice Vanilla Butter Sauce over top and just watch as everyone stops in their tracks. You won’t have to worry about leftovers with this dessert!
