Mother’s Day is just around the corner. Do you have plans?

We do the typical yard work and start the garden Mother’s Day weekend. Get the pile of mulch delivered, plan my veggies for the summer, work work work.

But honestly? I love it. I’m not one to go out for a fancy Mother’s Day brunch somewhere. I’m just as happy with burgers on the grill with a side of coleslaw.

However, I do love a good dessert. My dad makes an incredible bread pudding that would be perfect for any brunch or party at your house! I tweaked his recipe to give me more of the things I love. Raisins and nuts.

And not just any nut. You all know by now that I absolutely love Fisher Nuts, they are preservative free and taste incredibly fresh! I packed this bread pudding with plenty of Fisher Nuts Pecans!

My house smelled amazing while this baked up. And when it came out of the oven I was going to top it with a sweet vanilla glaze…but I chose to do a brown sugar glaze instead. It was the perfect, caramel topping to this chunky, custard bread pudding recipe!

I don’t know what your mom is wishing for this Mother’s Day, but I bet this Caramel Bread Pudding might get you on her favorites list!

    OH MY…  I just love bread pudding and caramel…so now you put them together and how can I resist !!
    I also read thru your dad’s recipe… sounds like his might be a little more custardy…is that correct ?  just going by the bread to milk ratio…   WOW… I’m just going to have to try both of these, adding more raisins & nuts you can never go wrong !
                                                                     Thanks for wonderful recipe and any advise you can give me.
