Just Peachy Bread Pudding

Throughout the summer, I’ve become obsessed with peaches {in pie, in sangria, in fruit salad, by themselves, you name it!}. I recently came across the most delicious peach bread pudding at El Dorado Kitchen in Sonoma Square and couldn’t resist recreating this delectable treat at home.

The key to making a stellar bread pudding is to use stale, day old bread. Yes, it’s true. So the next time you’re about to toss that day old bread, stop and rethink that decision. In my opinion it's great for breakfast or dessert and is real comfort food that will welcome you home, soothe you, and fill the house with enticing aromas…
