This Cranberry Bread Pudding is a great little bread pudding recipe that I’ve been making for years and years! Oh gosh, at least a dozen or so. I feel sad that I have neglected to post it before, thereby depriving y’all of this recipe! 🙂 Seriously, it’s good, very, very good. I almost want to say yummy, but there are lines I won’t cross! 🙂 In case it’s not coming across with the written word, I do like to tease a bit.

It was my first taste ever of bread pudding and it was a revelation.
